St. Louis being home to the 2024 Olympics could be really good for the city.

The United States Olympic Committee on Tuesday sent letters to the mayors of 35 American cities, including St. Louis, to find out if they’re interested in bidding for the 2024 games.

St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay’s communications director, Maggie Crane, told the Business Journal that Slay's office received the letter Friday afternoon.
