IOC chief arrives in Durban

Jul 04 2011 13:39
Durban - International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge has arrived in Durban amid frenzied final campaigning by the three candidates ahead of this week's vote on the host city for the 2018 Winter Games.

Rogge says Monday at King Shaka airport that the IOC is "delighted" to be in South Africa's east coast city for its 123rd session, or general assembly. Its members will on Wednesday choose the winning city by secret ballot.

Pyeongchang, South Korea, is favored to finally win over IOC members after failing in previous bids for the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics.

Munich is Pyeongchang's closest challenger with the third candidate, Annecy of France, considered the outsider.
