image for Next Winter Olympic Games Moved To Barbados
The decision was taken to abandon the 50k walk

Following complaints from competitors about the severity of the Vancouver weather the IOC has announced plans to switch the 2014 Games from Sochi, Russia to Barbados. IOC Winter Organiser Stig O'Treacy said "It's been very cold here. The wind hasn't helped, neither has the snow. We want to have the Winter Olympics, but we don't want to be cold either."

It was pointed out to O'Treacy that winter is usually cold and that the sporting events that comprised the Winter Olympics often relied on snow and ice being present. O'Treacy shrugged and said "We've spent this Games trying to upset the Russians. If we can move the next games they will be furious."

The move would actually please some competitors. Malcom Flannel, Great Britain's top ski jumper said "My medium is sand. I'm brilliant at jumping on sand. Just totally shit at jumping on snow. I'm all for it."

The IOC say that there is a precedent for this decision. The next Summer Olympics will be held in the UK because everywhere else was too hot.
