Tulsa Looking to Host US Olympics in the Next Ten Years

By Community | August 16, 2012

Michael Jones, a committee member of Tulsa Olympics Exploratory Committee is gearing up to host an Olympic Games in 10 years.

He says with the help of surrounding communities Green Country has a good a chance just like any other big city.

He added: “The research proved that we could do it. We’d have to use the regional model that Atlanta utilized as opposed to this centralized model that London is utilizing.”

The committee was formed about three years ago, and will bid when U.S. Olympic officials give them the go.

Jones said: “We can build the infrastructure that we need now in order to make the bid later.”

The committee expects to place its bid in 2015.
