Four Cities On USOC Short List
The U.S. Olympic Committee has placed Houston, New York, San Francisco and Washington on its short list of U.S. candidates for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.
Dropped from contention were Dallas, Los Angeles, Tampa and Cincinnati.
The four surviving cities were approved unanimously by a 12-member review panel that met this week. Charles H. Moore, chairman of the bid evaluation task force, said it was a close contest.
Moore said, “this has been an inspiring journey. Each city is better from the process and so is the USOC”.
The International Olympic Committee will vote on the host city in 2005.
