It's a strong competition we have with the Italian bid. But as we saw in there today, the Stockholm and Latvia bid is great. It's really worked through and all the guarantees are there. I'm really excited - Swedes, and we've never had the games before and we're such a winter Olympic country so it'll be great if we get to host it. So we'll see what happens this afternoon." 11. SOUNDBITE 2 - Stefan Holm, Swedish Olympic champion (male, Swedish, 15 sec): "It was supposed to last 45 minutes with the questions and answers, but we were a bit late because there were some problems, there were quite a lot of people in the room who had to leave so that we could get in, so we started a little late, but it went well."
