2012 GAMES: THE FINAL BIDS
Published June 4, 2001
Eight U.S. markets are competing to host the 2012 Summer Olympics. Each of the local groups coordinating these Olympic efforts was required to submit a bid for the Games to the U.S. Olympic Committee in December. Those bid documents subsequently were returned to the groups for revision. The final bid documents were due back to the USOC on Friday.
The stories presented here provide a look at each market's ongoing effort to secure the Games, and what each organizing committee plans to do in the coming months in pursuit of the Olympics. Most notably, these efforts will include preparations for official USOC site visits to each market this summer.
