MINNEAPOLIS - The City of Minneapolis is not bidding to host the Summer Olympics.

Mayor R.T. Rybak sent a letter to the U.S. Olympic Committee saying he appreciates the interest in hosting the 2024 games but, right now the city is focused on attracting large, national events such as the Super Bowl.

The committee recently sent a letter to Rybak detailing the outlines for putting in a formal bid.
