The Tulsa mayor, Dewey F. Bartlett Jr., withdrew his support this week of the plan to bring the Summer Games to Oklahoma, acknowledging that the city was not equipped to host an enormous international event like the Olympics.

Bartlett’s decision effectively kills Tulsa’s chance of hosting the Games because the United States Olympic Committee requires local government officials to support a city’s bid.
