Olympics

USOC acting CEO Susanne Lyons informed the IOC that three American cities are interested in hosting the 2030 Winter Games, according to a letter seen by THE DAILY. The letter, dated March 9, makes no mention of '26. The IOC’s deadline for declaring a bid for the 2026 Games is March 31, though it is possible the IOC will consider awarding both the 2026 and 2030 Games simultaneously, so the USOC is declaring an interest in being part of those discussions if they occur. The interested cities are Salt Lake City, Denver and Reno/Tahoe, though Lyons’ letter did not mention them by name. USOC Chief External Affairs Officer Patrick Sandusky confirmed the committee remains interested in '30.
