Kuala Lumpur to host IOC session in 2015

Kuala Lumpur will host the IOC meeting in 2015 when the host city for the 2022 Winter Olympics will be selected.

The Malaysian city was chosen Tuesday as the venue for the 127th session, or general assembly, of the International Olympic Committee. Lima, Peru, had been the other candidate.

The bidding process for the 2022 Games has not yet started. The IOC will select the host for the 2020 Summer Olympics at its session in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in September 2013.
