Should Salt Lake City get elevated to targeted dialogue it will signal that the Utah capital will likely host the 2034 Games, only needing rubber-stamping from the membership to make it official
The Games Bid reports that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) officials plan to discuss Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games bids for 2030 and 2034 on the first day of executive board meetings planned for Nov. 29 in Paris. According to a preliminary agenda released Tuesday, the executive board (EB) will listen to recommendations from the Future Host Commission for the Olympic Winter Games (FHC) at the end of the Wednesday session with a possible announcement following.
It is expected that the EB will then select one or more candidates for the 2030 and 2034 Games to be included in the targeted dialogue phase of the bid process.
TheGamesBid highlights that should Salt Lake City get elevated to targeted dialogue, it will signal that the Utah capital will likely host the 2034 Games, only needing rubber-stamping from the membership to make it official.
Earlier today, bids from France, Sweden, Switzerland, and Salt Lake City for the United States held a high level virtual meeting with the Future Host Commission for the Olympic Winter Games intended to cover key bid concepts and to make a final push for inclusion in the targeted dialogue phase.
The Salt Lake City-Utah Committee for the Games presentation to the FHC included Gov. Spencer Cox, Mayor Erin Mendenhall, and Olympic Champion Lindsey Vonn. The driving message to the FHC was “You can depend on us to deliver exceptional Games and bring a captivating vision to life, so, let’s move forward together now!”
Catherine Raney Norman, board chair, shared in response to the presentation that “The Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games are about athletes and community. Utah is a proven State of Sport with athletes from around the world training here. And the Games will provide us an opportunity to bring our communities together around sport. Today we brought not only a message to the IOC and IPC of athletes, communities and a bid that is fully prepared to engage the world.”
