USOC Taps Salt Lake City For Potential Bid On ’30 Winter Games/Paralympics

By Barry Janoff

December 15, 2018: The U.S. Olympic Committee has selected Salt Lake City to represent the United States in a potential 2030 bid to host the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

Denver had also expressed interest in hosting the 2030 Games.

According to the national organization, “The USOC board of directors has expressed interest in bidding for future winter Games but has not determined when a formal bid may occur.

“This selection affords the USOC and Salt Lake City the opportunity to move forward with the International Olympic Committee’s ongoing dialogue phase.”

If Salt Lake City ultimately moves ahead with the bid and gets IOC approval, it would mean back-to-back Olympics for the U.S., with Los Angeles hosting the 2028 Summer Games.

The IOC is in dire needs of cities that actually want to host the Games.

For 2024 and 2028, respectively, Paris and Los Angeles were the last two cities standing after a bevy of other locations dropped out.

For 2022, Beijing was the pick for the Winter Games, ahead of Almaty (Kazakhstan), after such cities as Oslo, Stockholm, Krakow (Poland) and Lviv (Ukraine) stopped their respective bids.

The bidding process for the 2026 Winter Games is currently down to Stockholm (Sweden) and Milan-Cortina d’Ampezzo (Italy) after Calgary and others dropped out.

The IOC is not scheduled to decide on a host city for 2030 until 2023.

Salt Lake City was also the site for the last Olympics in the U.S. when it hosted the 2002 Winter Games.

The last Winter Games in North America were 2010 in Vancouver.

“I’d like to thank Denver and Salt Lake City, and their respective leadership teams, for participating in this process and their commitment to make the Olympic and Paralympic movements stronger,” USOC chair Larry Probst said via the organization.

“We’re incredibly lucky to have multiple able and willing cities to choose from, but in the end, we believe Salt Lake City will give us the best chance to return the winter Games to the U.S.”

According to the USOC, each city was asked for information related to its overall concept and vision for the Games, its proposed venue plan, transport and accommodations solutions, political and public support, and a proposed Games budget.

USOC staff and board leadership visited each city to “further understand the proposed Games and public opinion polling was conducted at the end of November.”

According to Sarah Hirshland, USOC CEO, “The United States is committed to hosting Games that are both remarkable and practical, and we believe that Salt Lake City is the community most capable of delivering against that promise.

“This exploration process was a unique opportunity for the USOC to develop even stronger partnerships with each city and state and all involved will continue to play a critical role in our winter athletes’ success.”

Added Jackie Biskupski, mayor for Salt Lake City, “We are truly humbled and honored to be the USOC’s choice to bid for a future Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.

"We take our role as a member of the Olympic family seriously and look forward to showing the international community how Salt Lake City is ready, willing, and able to host a modern, sustainable, and athlete focused Games which further the spirit of sport and the Olympic and Paralympic movements," said Biskupski.
