Add Krakow to the growing list of cities who do not want to host the 2022 Winter Olympics.
The Polish city withdrew its bid this week after residents overwhelmingly voted against the plan, according to the Associated Press.

Almaty, Kazakhstan, and Beijing, China remain as the two cities which still seem to want to host the Winter Games.
Beijing is seeking to become the first city to host both the summer and winter Olympics after it hosted the Summer Games in 2008.
