Park City Awaits Progress on Olympic Bid With Tokyo Over, Beijing Nearing
The 2020 Summer Olympic cauldron in Tokyo was extinguished last week. And the Winter Olympic flame is expected to reach Beijing in February. But it is not clear what sort of progress will be made on the bidding for the 2030 Winter Games before the opening ceremonies in China next winter.
Salt Lake City and the wider Olympic region that includes the Park City area is seen as one of the top contenders for the Games in 2030 or those of four years later, but it is not yet known which event will be pursued or when the International Olympic Committee will make a selection for either of those Games.
Paris has the 2024 Summer Olympics, the Italian cities of Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo were awarded the 2026 Winter Olympics, the 2028 Summer Olympics are slated to be held in Los Angeles and the Summer Olympics in 2032 were recently awarded to Brisbane, Australia.
