Houston Mayor Says City Wants 2016 Olympics

By  | 

Mayor Bill White says Houston will throw its hat in the ring as a candidate to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.

The city will submit its proposal later this month to the United States Olympic Committee. The committee must still decide whether the United States will compete for the 2016 summer games.

White's decision comes one month after a delegation of the Olympic committee visited five cities, including Houston, on a fact-finding mission.
