    The U.S. Olympic Committee this week is expected to take the first step toward determining when and what Olympics it will bid for in the future, according to Tripp Mickle in this week's SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL. USOC CEO Scott Blackmun is expected to propose that the organization's board create a committee to evaluate the organization's options for bidding, sources familiar with the proposal said. The USOC's new revenue-sharing agreement with the IOC, which it reached last month, paves the way for a bid, but the organization still has to determine what Olympics it would want to host. The next two Olympics it can bid for are the 2022 Winter Games and the 2024 Summer Games.
