They were bidding on it. It was called Florida 2012. It would have been more of a central florida olympics, then a Tampa Olympics. Although Tampa was where most of the events were going to be including the olympic village. Tampa and a few other cities were the first ones to get droped by the US Olympic commitee. Once we get some mass trans. and rail links throughout Cen. FL, then I see it becoming possible.
