Reader's view: Let’s bring Olympic Winter Games to Duluth and Thunder Bay

Call it Lakehead/Duluth 2026 or Thunder Bay/Duluth 2026. Let’s get started on making a joint Winter Olympics bid.

We can host the 2026 (or even 2030) Winter Olympics; and we would be guaranteed to get it, I feel, if Thunder Bay and Duluth co-hosted it with some events held at points in between. Give Duluth the opening ceremonies and we can get the closing right after the gold medal hockey game. We in Thunder Bay could get snowboarding, freestyle skiing and ski jumping, all held at Big Thunder, and cross-country skiing.

Let’s start talking on Facebook. Search for the “Thunder Bay/Duluth 2026 Winter Olympics bid.”
