Colorado still interested in Olympics

DENVER — Colorado officials say they are still interested in holding the Olympics.

According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/8sevxxo ), several members of the Denver Sports board traveled as spectators to this year's games in London to scope out the events.

The U.S. Olympic Committee board is forming a committee that would look into bidding for the Olympics in 2024 and 2026, in part because going for the 2022 Games would be too difficult.

The International Olympic Committee awarded the 1976 Winter Games to Denver, but the city later decided against hosting the event amid concerns over pollution and promoting too much growth.
