We deal in reality not dreams – Almaty Olympic bid vice-chairman

Vice Chairman of the Almaty 2022 bid committee Andrey Kryukov answers to journalists on June 9, 2015 at the IOC Museum in Lausanne after the bid presentation of Almaty 2022 Candidate City before the IOC membersThe Almaty bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympics is about reality and facts, not dreams and fantasies, their bid vice-chairman Andrey Kryukov told AFP on Tuesday. Indeed the slogan has been widely seen as a sideways dig at Beijing. For while Almaty has made much of the fact they have venues already built, boast a compact Games complex (all the facilities would be within 33km of Almaty) and real snow, Beijing’s alpine skiing events will take place on artificial snow and Chongli, where the Olympic village is proposed, is more than 160 kilometres (100 miles) from Beijing with some venues 200 kilometres away.
