USOC Does Not Plan To Put Forward Bid City For '20 Olympics
The USOC does not plan to put forward a bid for the '20 Olympics. Speaking after a BOD meeting in California yesterday, USOC CEO Scott Blackmun said that the organization plans to resolve its revenue-sharing negotiations with the IOC before it will consider putting forward a bid city for a future Olympics. Blackmun said, "If we're able to do that, we'll put the idea of a possible bid under consideration." Blackmun said the USOC has not met with any cities about bidding and has not had any communication with Chicago's mayoral office about a bid.
