‘A huge day for Utah’: IOC names Salt Lake City preferred host of 2034 Winter Olympics

November 29, 2023

SALT LAKE CITY — Fraser Bullock had an inkling about Salt Lake City’s future Winter Olympics odds before the International Olympic Committee executive board met Wednesday to announce potential hosts for the 2030 and 2034 Games.

Bullock, president and CEO of the Salt Lake City-Utah Committee for the Games, had been on the phone with IOC officials earlier in the day and they had essentially assured him hours before any formal announcement that Salt Lake City would be selected as the favorite for 2034. Still, he said it was a “magical moment” to hear Utah’s capital city read out loud.
