LAUSANNE, Switzerland —

All five contenders for the 2022 Winter Games have submitted their bid files to the International Olympic Committee.

The IOC says the five cities met Friday's deadline for delivering their application documents outlining their vision and concept for the games.

The five candidates are Almaty, Kazakhstan; Beijing; Krakow, Poland; Lviv, Ukraine; and Oslo.

The IOC executive board will decide which cites go through to the final phase at a meeting in Lausanne on July 7-9.

The full IOC will select the host city on July 31, 2015, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Beijing, which hosted the 2008 Olympics, is seeking to become the first city to host both the Summer and Winter Games. Oslo hosted the 1952 Winter Games.
