US sounds out IOC on possible 2024 Olympic bid


SOCHI, Russia (AP) — U.S. Olympic leaders are sounding out international officials about a potential American bid for the games — and the feedback is positive.

The U.S. Olympic Committee is currently weighing a possible run for the 2024 Summer Games. If that's ruled out, the 2026 Winter Olympics would be an option.

USOC chairman Larry Probst and CEO Scott Blackmun are talking with members of the IOC in Sochi.

Blackmun tells The Associated Press "we can get some really good input: Is it time for a U.S. bid and, if so, where should it come from?"

The U.S. hasn't hosted the Summer Olympics since 1996 in Atlanta. Salt Lake City staged the last Winter Games in the U.S. in 2002.

Blackmun says "I think people genuinely would like to see a U.S. bid."
