Colorado Public Radio reports, no Winter Games for you Colorado:
The U.S. Olympic Committee has nominated Salt Lake City to be the host city of the 2030 Winter Olympics, eliminating Denver from the process…
The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) announced their choice for the 2030 host city on Friday.
Denver and Salt Lake City were two of the few true competitors for the title. Most cities have been ambivalent at best in their efforts (or lack thereof) to woo the upcoming Winter Olympics. The Reno-Tahoe area declined an invitation to bid for the host city title.
The Denver Sports Commission said in a statement the decision was “disappointing.”
Not everyone is disappointed by the decision of the U.S. Olympic Committee to return to Utah once again as the nation’s host entry for the 2030 Winter Olympics instead of Colorado, or the Colorado-Utah co-hosted Games also proposed–first among them Gov.-elect Jared Polis, who broke with the previous administration’s support for a Colorado Olympic bid with a “meh” that was probably decisive.
And as exciting as it would have been, there are lots of more important things to spend money on.
Just like Dick Lamm said in 1972.
