Olympic Games: Back in SLC?
According to http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/home3/53551986-200/lake-salt-games-olympic.... , it seems like the Olympic games returning to Salt Lake City a decade from now is becoming a possibility! Money, venues, public support, and leadership are all areas that that the Olympic commity looks for in possible Olympic hosting locations, and none of these categories would seem to pose an issue for Salt Lake. It was a huge success when it was hosted here in 2002, and it would be an incredible opportunity for it to be brought back here again in 2022 or 2026. It seems like it would be an easy location to choose, because the venues are already here and would only need slight upgrading in order to be brought up to Olympic standards. The support of the surrounding community is already there, because people remember how much of a success it was when it was hosted here previously. Even if it's a long stretch to have the Olympic Games hosted at the same location 20 years apart, I would still love to see them return to my hometown sometime in the near future.
