Group with 2020 Olympics vision starts Dallas-Fort Worth host campaign
May. 14, 2010
A group of Dallas-area business leaders and sports enthusiasts already has the Olympic spirit for 2020, firing up an early grass-roots campaign to bring those Games to North Texas. "We wanted to do whatever we could do to put Dallas at the forefront for 2020 bid or whenever the USOC decides to bid again," said Matt Wood, an attorney who has worked on several such bids, including Dallas' failed attempt for the 2012 Olympics. U.S. Olympic Committee spokesman Patrick Sandusky said the USOC has no plans to enter the 2020 bidding.
