When is the Olympics coming back to the US?

The next possible olympics in the US will be in 2020, in either New York or Chicago. However these chances are very slim as the US is only a potential bid, not an official. The official possibilities for the 2020 olympics are in Italy, Spain, Japan, and Turkey. However, since no official possibilities for the 2022 olympics are stated, the US is a major potential. It is possible it may happen in Denver, Lake Tahoe/Reno area, or Salt Lake City.
