A group of elected Utah leaders are looking at potentially hosting another Olympic Winter Games.  On Monday, they announced the formation of an official Olympic/Paralympic Exploratory Committee (OEC).    

The Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation representatives believe the Winter Olympics should return to SLC and they’re looking at the 2026 or 2030 games as potential dates.  The argument is the infrastructure is all in place and it won’t cost tax payers a thing. Carolyn Murray has more:

Proud Americans

Aug 16, 2013

In soon to be war-torn Sarajevo, a pair of twins stood proudly for all of America.

Hi, this is Tom Kelly and I'll be right back with the story, Behind the Gold.

It's been nearly 30 years since Phil Mahre climbed atop the podium in Sarajevo, twin Steve at his side. Despite the passage of time, the memory and the emotion hasn't faded. It's grown stronger. Phil and Steve Mahre dominated their support in the early 1980's.

Hi, this is Tom Kelly, and I'll be right back with the Olympic story Behind the Gold.

The modern day Olympic games started in 1896, patterned after the ancient Grecian contests. But it wasn't until 1924 that the Olympic site of Paris chose to do a winter exposition-an event that later became the first Olympic Winter Games in Chamonix. Ski jumping was the Marquee Competition.

Originally aired July 17, 2013.
