The South Korean city of Pyeongchang has been awarded the 2018 Winter Olympics.
The city received 63 of the 95 votes cast in the first round of International Olympic Committee voting Wednesday, 15 more than was needed to avoid a second ballot.
Pyeongchang beat out bids from Munich, Germany, which received 25 votes, and Annecy, France, which received seven, according to the Associated Press.
The Koreans came up short in their previous bids for the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics, losing out to Vancouver and Sochi, Russia, respectively.
Pyeongchang will become the first city in Asia outside Japan to host the Winter Games. Japan held the games in Sapporo in 1972 and Nagano in 1998.
