Krolicki again urges readiness to seek 2022 Winter Olympics


CARSON CITY -- Nevada's lieutenant governor is calling again for the Reno-Tahoe area to prepare a bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki has raised the call before as chairman of the Reno Tahoe Winter Games Coalition.

He told the Nevada Appeal the area that hosted the 1960 Winter Olympic Games at Squaw Valley should be prepared if the United States Olympic Committee calls for a bid.

Krolicki said hosting the Games would boost the regional economy for years before and after.

USOC spokesman Mark Jones told the Appeal there are no current plans to call for a bid.

An announcement is due in July whether Annecy, France; Munich; or Pyeongchang, South Korea, will host the 2018 Winter Games.
