The host city for the USA Olympic Wrestling and Weightlifting Trials — set for April 2012 — was originally expected to be announced on Monday, but none was made.

Josh Schamberger, the president of the Iowa City/Coralville Convention and Visitors Bureau, said the announcement would likely be made on Wednesday, with a news conference to be scheduled for Thursday morning if Iowa City is named the host city of the event.

Iowa City is one of three cities named finalists to host the trials along with Columbus, Ohio, and Council Bluffs. Representatives from the three cities made presentations with additional information to a selection committee.

Officials say the event could bring in millions of dollars in revenue to the Iowa City area.
