USOC 2020 Olympic BidUSOC 2020 Olympic Bid, U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) has announced that there will be no U.S. bid for 2020 Olympics, which means the Games are almost two decades without a visit to U.S. soil.

The last time the U.S. hosted the Olympic games was in 1996 in Atlanta, and Winter Olympics, most recently in 2002 in Salt Lake City. U.S. has hosted the Olympic Games eight times, more than any other country, but two final bids were not considered rather embarrassing: the city of New York was eliminated in the second round of voting in his bid for the 2012 Games, while Chicago’s bid for 2016 ended sadly when he came in last among the four cities.

As elsewhere in the world are preparing for their 2020 bids, due on September 1, said the USOC is rolling back another shot at that because the organization must work first revenue-sharing agreement with the IOC International Olympic Committee (IOC).

In the past, the USOC holds 20% of the revenues generated by corporate sponsorships and 12.75% made by television networks. The IOC believes that a cut is too large, and the issue has soured relations in recent years. A new formula for dividing the money is in the works; a USOC official told NPR that while a new agreement is not reached, no bids are placed.

U.S. Cities who had expressed interest in bidding on this occasion – but not have the opportunity now – are Chicago, New York, Dallas and Las Vegas. So far, Rome, Tokyo, Madrid and Istanbul, have confirmed bids for 2020.
