    Please, SLC and Utah, host the Olympics and keep them out of Colorado !!!

    The Olympics should be held on a rotational basis between a few cities that have done it well. Brazil and China have let their Olympic facilities go to seed while SLC has maintained the infrastructure they invested in. Rotate the winter games between 4 locations and the summer games as well. That saves the world from massive building programs that end up not being used after the games. Some might complain that it is not fair that a few select cities would get the financial boon of hosting the games but certain countries have stepped up and hosted great games while others did not.

    SLCPD has a few years, then, to get its act together...

    Funny, someone in Missouri claiming we don't want the Olympics again.

    Yes they did limit protest zones. The Olympics is not the place for partisan protests. It's the world coming together as one for the competition.

    The last time was great, too bad we waited this long. I hope we get 2026. Show the world yet again how great this state really is, and how good an Olypmic Games we can put on.

    Yeah, we should just have the Winter Olympics in Russia, where everyone gets to speak freely anywhere they want.

    We do want the Olympics since last time we made money, got new facilities which continue to serve all of us, and had fun with foreigners and others we would have never met. Of course, we have to find another Mitt Romney to run it. I didn't say it would be easy, but it would be worth it.

    Fewer communities want anything to do with the five ring circus anymore.
