Winter Games in U.S. a possibility

Published by indian under Winter Games


Leaders at the USOC (US Olympic Committee) will be considering to bring Winter Games to America as part of a larger effort to repair the international standing of the federation. Chairman ‘Larry Probst’ said “Nothing’s off the table at this point,” during an interview at Associated Press headquarters Tuesday.

The US Olympic Committee has been quiet about future bids but unfortunately Chicago finished last in the running to host the 2016 Summer Games that were awarded to Rio de Janeiro. 2020 Summer Games bid is widely viewed as unlikely given Chicago’s recent failure, at the cost of $70 million & a similar early exit by New York in the race for the 2012 Olympics.
