Annecy’s 2018 Winter Olympics bid is in trouble

French IOC member Guy Drut has informed that the Annecy 2018 Winter Olympics bid is now far-off from its completion. However the chief executive officer of the event had resigned from his position last week.

But it is not going to help in the preparation process. The IOC member from France has informed this fact in an interview on Wednesday.

Such negative remarks from Drut are now being considered to be the main obstacle of the event. Edgar Grospiron had also made his departure on Sunday. This had created added tension on the current situation. So the bid is definitely on trouble.

Earlier in this month International Olympic Committee (IOC) member Jean-Claude Killy had also informed the same issue in his statement. So now with the remark from Drut has become the latest blow to strike the bid for the event.

On Wednesday, Drut had spoken at a news conference that the country has done nothing yet for this event. So everybody needs to accept the fact.

The budget has increased from 18 million euros to 20 million euros. But still Annecy is lagging far behind its rivals like Munich, Germany and Pyeongchang, South Korea.
