LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki says Nevada has
agreed with officials in California to make a run at hosting the
2022 Winter Olympics at Lake Tahoe.
If successful, the bid would bring the games back to where they
were held in 1960.
Krolicki told Nevada tourism leaders in Las Vegas on Wednesday that the Reno-Tahoe Winter Games Coalition has a memorandum of
understanding with California leaders to try to convince the U.S. Olympic Committee to back their bid and take it to the International Olympic Committee.
The USOC has been noncommittal about a 2022 bid as recently as
September. Denver has also approached the national committee about hosting.
Earlier this year, the committee scrapped a plan to try to bring the 2020 Summer Olympics back to the United States.
