Who selects the city in which the Olympics will be held?
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) makes this selection. Cities vie for the Olympics and put in bids. The committee then weighs several factors and eventually makes their decision.

Where are the Olympics held?
The Olympics are in a different city each time they are held. Cities put in 'bids' with the International Olympic Committee in an attempt to get selected by the IOC to hold the Olympic Games. The IOC selects the cities that will hold the Olympics many years in advance. A link below shows all the cities that have hosted the games.
