Denver Exploring Possible Winter Olympics Bid

Might the 2022 Winter Olympics come to Denver? That's what Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and Gov. John Hickenlooper want to see, and on Friday they announced the formation of an exploratory committee, reports the Denver Post. It appears that Reno and Tahoe in Nevada will submit a bid to the United States Olympic Committee, as well.

Denver had been selected to host the 1976 Olympics in 1970, but in 1972 the voters rejected hosting the event.
