Kazakhstan will consider holding of the 2032-Winter Olympic Games.

The National Olympic Committee of Kazakhstan relinquished the idea to apply for holding the 2026-Winter Olympic Games, BNews.kz reports with reference to Insidethegames.biz.

“Being vice president of the National Olympic Committee of the Republic of Kazakhstan, I say that the country will not pretend to hold the 2026-Olympics. Instead, we will consider the possibility to hold the next Games,” vice president of the NOC of Kazakhstan Andrei Kryukov said.

Earlier, Almaty applied for holding the 2022-Games. Following the voting among the members of the IOC, Beijing (China) won the right to hold the Olympics by some 4 votes.
