Could another U.S. city host the Olympics before L.A. gets a chance … – Los Angeles Times

Only a month after Los Angeles was officially named host of the 2028 Summer Games, U.S. Olympic Committee officials expressed their desire to put forth another American bid in the near future.

“I think I put a stake in the ground and said we are interested in hosting the Winter Games,” USOC Chairman Larry Probst said in a teleconference on Friday.

The next Olympics up for grabs would be 2026, which could be problematic given L.A.’s efforts to prepare and rally domestic support over the next 11 years. LA 2028 officials have said they would need to give the matter careful consideration before backing any such move.

Probst acknowledged that it might be better to try for 2030 “so there’s no confusion.”
