(KUTV) — The U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) announced they will not make a bid for a 2026 winter Olympics, which means Salt Lake City will not be able to put a bid in for those games.

The USOC chairman determined the Olympics would not come to the U.S. in 2026, because in 2028 the Summer Olympics will take place in Los Angeles, California.

If the U.S. decides to put in a bid for the 2030 games, Utah leaders have already cleared the way for a Salt Lake City bid.

Salt Lake City would be up against Denver, Colorado and Lake Tahoe, Nevada.
