Sochi given 2014 Winter Olympics

Many in Sochi partied all night after hearing the announcement
The Russian resort of Sochi has been chosen to host the 2014 Winter
Olympics, beating South Korea's Pyeongchang.

Sochi secured 51 votes at a meeting of International Olympic Committee
(IOC) delegates in Guatemala, beating its South Korean rival by just
four votes.

In earlier voting, the third contender, Salzburg in Austria, was
eliminated.

The presidents of all three candidate countries had attended the
meeting to plead their countries' cases.
