Davos-St Moritz backed for 2022 Olympic bid

Switzerland’s Olympic committee has said it will back a joint bid from the luxury Alpine resorts of Davos and St Moritz to host the 2022 Winter Games.

Swiss Olympic president Jörg Schild says Davos-St Moritz was chosen over Geneva because their proposal would have a better chance than a city-based bid.
