The benefits of hosting the Olympic Games are:

- increased employment - lots of workers needed for construction of facilities etc.

- increased tourism - the host nation is put on show to all the world

- better infrastructure - transport, security etc. are all improved

- feel-good factor across the host nation

The Olympics usually are very expensive (London 2012 budget is somewhere around £9 billion) and so host nations have to weigh up the pros and cons.

Can any city host the winter Olympics?

Subject to certain Intrnational Olympic Committee (IOC) guidelines, any major city can apply to host the Summer Games. However, locations for the Winter Olympics, which require extensive ice and snow, are much more restrictive as regards available area, climate, and access (Innsbruck, the site of the first Winter Youth Olympics in 2012, had to haul in snow for the Olympics in 1964). Because the Games are expensive, rules now limit host countries to those that would likely not suffer adverse impact from bearing the immense costs. This effectively prevents developing countries from hosting a Winter Olympics.
