SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The International Olympic Committee's decision this week to pick both Paris and Los Angeles as the next two Summer Games' hosts is a break from tradition that one expert says could improve Salt Lake City's chances to host another Winter Games.

The Deseret News reports that Ed Hula, founder and editor of Olympics business news source Around the Rings, predicts Salt Lake City could host the 2030 Winter Games. Hula says he expects Paris to land the 2024 Summer Games and Los Angeles the 2028 Summer Games.

The committee does not typically pick the location of two games at once, as it will do in September. And it also does not typically award countries two Olympics in a row, as it would have to do if a Winter Games in Salt Lake City is to follow the potential Summer Games in Los Angeles.
