Utah Named Preferred Host of Winter Olympics in 2034!

 

Could it happen again? That remains to be seen, as all with be revealed in due time.

 

The International Olympic Committee will officially announce this event next year. Utah was home to the Winter Olympics back in 2002 and also known as, Salt Lake 2002, it put our great state on the map, you might say.

 

When it was announced that the Winter olympics would take place in 2002, 45% of Utah's people were against it because of the terroristic acts that took place in Georgia during their olympic event. Understandable! 

 

The economy in Utah was better than most other states in America due to proactive building standards, especially transportation infrastructure. And the economy of today's Utah continues to get better with each year.

 

The public invested in the Olympic venues, voting to to give $59MIL to the facilities with the hopes of attracting the winter games. It worked! After the 2002 games were over, the money was eventually paid back - with interest. 

 

The facilities are still used today and Robert Lyon once said, “We’re still one of the best facilities in the entire world, and everyone knows that and everyone comes here to train.

So it left an amazing impact I think in this community. Everyone would tell you in the towns of Salt Lake and Park City that we would love to have it again someday.” 

 

While the Winter Olympics may take place in northern Utah, the southern part of the state will be positively impacted as well and that's where I come in because Wanda Can!

 

Will it become a reality again? We'll soon find out!

Hi Wanda,
Let's hope Utah does get the 2024 games. I'm sure there will be additional venues built or remodeled to enhance what is already there.

Would love to attend if Utah is the lucky location, Kathy Streib. Of course, that would mean braving the freezing, winter temperatures but I could handle it for a short spurt! LOL

The facilities that were built back then have been maintained and used for the most part and Utah would be open to improving the area, I'm sure, Carol Williams!

That would be a boon for the economy and as so much was already there the financial burdens to the residents should be less.

Anywhere that is cold enough to host the Winter Olympics is certainly not a place I want to be, haha.  I don't like cold weather at all.

We will all be 10 years older when it takes place, Endre Barath, Jr., wherever they decide. Utah is a fantastic choice though!

We went to the northern part of the state for Thanksgiving and ran into blizzard conditions on the way home, no fun at all. I tell people that I'm allergic to the snow and that's why I live in southern Utah, Brian England! 🥳
