Can NZ and Aussie share the Winter Olympics??

Well can they do it??  Costly endeavour yeah but a shared billing has merit.  Obviously New Zealand will have the outdoors events with Aussie having most of the indoor events.

A smiling Silver Medalist Annaliese Coberger.  Seriously we don't succeed at Winter  sport and that may or may not have happened with hosting but there would be a lasting legacy regarding venues and more winter sports opening up to tourists in all venues.

The  spreadsheet below gives all the probable venues and sports aligned to each venue.  This year it appears we have up and coming winter games sports folk which means we might just have the goods to host.

All the hosting venues in New Zealand to be outdoor venues and Aussie  almost all the indoor sports.  Budget wise NZ and Aus share the funding as both share a donkeys share and Governments  be primary funders,

And yes you'll see it - Skating in Dunedin. They have a great venue in Forsyth Barr and Speed skating is a big audiences event.
