USOC Panel To Study An Olympic Bid
The U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) has appointed a five-member panel to decide whether it should bid for a future Olympic Games. The announcement was made Tuesday.
Members of the panel are International Olympic Committee (IOC) member Anita DeFrantz, USA Hockey executive Dave Ogrean, Angela Ruggiero, Mike Plant and Susanne Lyons.
The group is to report to the entire USOC board at its quarterly meeting in December. Under consideration are the 2024 Summer Olympics and the 2026 Winter Olympic Games.
The United States hasn't hosted an Olympics since the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Games. The last U.S. Summer Olympics was in 1996 in Atlanta.
