Chessbase have just reported that the 2014 Olympiad will be held in the Norwegian city of Tromsø! The Norwegian bid edged out their Bulgarian rivals who planned to host their event in Albena. I have to admit, I was slightly leaning towards the Bulgarians on this one. That was largely thanks to this impressive video that features sun, surf and gorgeous people.
Still, Tromsø looks quite enticing, too. I just hope that they think to actually hold the event in agreeable weather. The place looks quite nice in the summer time. Here's a promo vid by the Norwegians.
