Chicago's Olympic Dream Revived?

The USOC is considering supporting Chicago for a new Olympic bid, according to Crain's Chicago Business



    Chicago's dream of becoming an Olympic city could be revived again.

    On Thursday, officials from the U.S and International Olympic committee announced they have reached a deal on how to distribute TV revenues, according to Crain's Chicago Business.

    That's one of the reasons why Chicago lost it's bid to host the 2016 games, according to Crain's.

    Crain's columnist Greg Hinz reports USOC officials are going to support any city that's willing to bid, including Chicago.

    The U.S did not make any bid for the 2020 Olympics, but it may consider making a bid for 2024.
