I see a new trend with the Olympics forming. I saw they pick some cold area to hold the summer Olympics next.

Summer Olympics 2020 will be held at the North Pole! Notserious

Looks like Japan will host the 2020 summer games....

Just because a Pool is "Olympic Size" doesn't mean it can be used in Competition. Hosting a Summer Games would cost much more, because we do not have Venues for Diving, Swimming, Rowing, Kayaking, Fencing, Handball, Table Tennis, Beach Volleyball, and most importantly, Sailing. Ask Atlanta how many of those Venues are still Used, cause many of them are not. Utah is also mostly known as a Winter Sports Mecca, and Summer Games here would have to be held in June or September to Avoid Killing the Athletes. On the other hand, all of Utah's Winter Olympic Venues are still in Operation and no new Venues require Construction. It could potentially be the Cheapest Winter Olympic Games to be put on and also the most fair, as the International Community would have had as much experience in the Venues as the Home Team.

The Kerns Aquatic Center has Olympic regulation diving platforms meaning that they can be qualified and could be used in an Olympic event as they meet the right requirements. same for the lap pool too and people have trained many times for the summer Olympics there. Im just stating they have EVERYTHING they need for the swimming and diving parts. There is even stadium like seating too.

Also sometimes its better to tell a white lie then tell the truth because you may hurt someone else's feelings.
