No US plans for bid for '26 Olympics

Print Article

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) - The chairman of the U.S. Olympic Committee says there will be no American bid for the 2026 Winter Games but the USOC will keep its options open for 2030.

Larry Probst said the financial logistics of hosting the Winter Olympics two years before Los Angeles hosts the Summer Games in 2028 are too complex.

There is a possibility the IOC could award 2026 and 2030 together, and Probst said if that's the case, the USOC is prepared to be part of the process.

Earlier this week, Salt Lake City said it would try to become the American candidate for a 2030 bid; Denver is also considering a bid.
