AP - Sports

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) -- Leaders of Krakow's campaign for the 2022 Winter Olympics have submitted their bid documents to the IOC.

A Polish delegation delivered the files Thursday at the headquarters of the International Olympic Committee.

Bid leader and three-time Olympic snowboarder Jagna Marczulajtis-Walczak says Krakow ''presents an authentic winter sports experience in ideal conditions.''

Krakow proposes holding some events in the Polish mountain resort of Zakopane and also across the border in Slovakia.

Krakow is one of five contenders in the race, along with Almaty, Kazakhstan; Beijing; Lviv, Ukraine; and Oslo.

Friday is the deadline for submission of the bid books.

The IOC will select a short list of finalists on July 8-9 and choose the winning city on July 31, 2015.
