USOC Considering Boston, LA, SF and DC for 2024 Olympics
By Seth Rubinroit
The U.S. Olympic Committee is considering four cities for a possible U.S. bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympics: Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington D.C.
“We’re extremely pleased with the level of interest U.S. cities have shown in hosting the Games,” said USOC CEO Scott Blackmun to TeamUSA.org. “Boston, LA, San Francisco and Washington have each given us reason to believe they can deliver a compelling and successful bid, and we look forward to continuing to explore the possibilities as we consider 2024.”
Los Angeles hosted the Olympics in 1932 and 1984. The other three cities have never hosted.
The USOC has not committed to submitting a bid to host the 2024 Olympics. USOC chairman Larry Probst stated earlier this week that the organization will wait and see what changes the IOC might make in the bidding process under new IOC president Thomas Bach “before we push the ‘go’ button on 2024.”
