Winner Salt Lake City (54 votes)
Runner-up Sion, Switzerland (14 votes)

Four cities made the shortlist with their bids to host the 2002 Winter Olympics (formally known as XIX Olympic Winter Games), which were awarded to Salt Lake City, on June 16, 1995. The other shortlisted cities were Sion, Östersund and Quebec City. The host city selection procedure to for the 2002 Winter Olympics will go down in history as one of the most controversial, in light of the scandal regarding the interactions between the Salt Lake City bid team and International Olympic Committee (IOC) members; ten IOC members resigned as a result, as did Salt Lake City bid leaders Tom Welch and Dave Johnson. Nevertheless, Salt Lake City overwhelmingly won the right to host the Games, needing only one round to gain the absolute majority of the votes.
