Atlanta Selected to Bid for 1996 Olympic Games

The U.S. Olympic Committee selected Atlanta over Minneapolis-St. Paul as the U.S. city that would be allowed to bid on the 1996 Summer Olympics. In September 1987, 14 U.S. cities had submitted bids to the U.S.O.C., which later narrowed the choice to two - Atlanta and Minneapolis-St. Paul.
