Harbin waits

HARBIN is awaiting approval from China's Cabinet before launching a bid to host the 2018 Winter Olympics, an official at the city's sports bureau said.

The northern metropolis of nearly 10 million people wants to bring the Olympics back to China a decade after the successful Summer Games in Beijing. "We are applying for the 2018 Winter Olympics, Harbin wants to host the Games," Li Chunlei, who is working on the bid project, said. "But it is under the examination and approval of the State Council and there is still some time to go before the deadline." China has until October 15 to bid for the games.
