Barcelona set to bid for 2022 Winter Olympics

Winter Olympics
Barcelona could become the first city to host the summer and winter Games

Barcelona mayor Jordi Hereu has revealed that the Catalan capital will bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Should the bid succeed, Barcelona, which staged the 1992 summer Olympics, will become the first city to host the summer and winter Games.

Events will also be held in the Pyrenees, which are north of the city.

Hereu said: "There isn't any technical reason which impedes Barcelona from hosting the Winter Olympic Games. The city is ready and has the experience."
