Andrey Kryukov: Almaty 2022 - the perfect fit for Agenda 2020

With just 10 days left to go, the Host City race for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games is shaping up to be one of the most exciting and important in recent decades. Dramatic changes that have unfolded within the Olympic Movement since the beginning of the bidding process have had major implications on the race, and look to be a major factor in determining which city emerges victorious in Kuala Lumpur on July 31.

American ski jumper Anders Haugen did not receive his Olympic bronze medal from Chamonix in 1924 until 50 years after he should have done due to a scoring error. In 1974, at the 50th reunion of the 1924 Norwegian team, sports historian Jacob Vaage was going over the results when he noticed the error. The bronze medal had been awarded by mistake to Norwegian skier Thorleif Haug, winner of three gold medals in those first Winter Olympics. Later that year, Haugen visited Norway as an 86-year-old and was given the bronze medal by Anna Maria Magnussen, Haug's youngest daughter.
