The XXth Winter Olympic Games will be held in Turin, Italy from February 10 to 26. Turin was chosen as the host of the Olympics in 1999, defeating Sion[?] (Switzerland). This was just after the IOC had adopted a new style of voting due to corruption scandals surrounding the votes for the 1998 and 2002 Winter Olympics.
