As Sochi passed the torch onto PyeongChang, South Korea, the site of the next Winter Games, thoughts turned to a future U.S. Olympic bid, according to USA TODAY.

The paper reports leaders of the U.S. Olympic Committee intend to bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics if certain criteria are met. In the next two months, the USOC will likely have a short list of three candidate cities and by the end of the year will be in a position to make its decision.

There's also the possibility that the USA will consider bidding for the 2026 Winter Games, even though the Summer Games is the more prestigious prize.
