The 1976 Winter Olympics were ahead of Sion in Switzerland, Tempere in Finland and Denver Awarded Vancouver, Canada at the 1970 International Olympic Committee meeting. But in a November 1972 referendum in Colorado, voters refused to fund the event. It is the only time that a city has won the Olympics but has withdrawn. The IOC then offered the games to Whistler in Canada, but they also declined due to a change of government after the elections. Salt Lake City offered to host the Games, but the IOC, still suffering from Denver’s rejection, declined and chose Innsbruck, the host city of 1964, as its replacement.
