Los Angeles named U.S. bid candidate for 2024 Summer Olympic Games
After Boston pulled out of the Olympic race in July, Los Angeles was selected on Tuesday (Sept 1) as the American candidate city that will bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympics.
Los Angeles hosted the Summer Games in 1932 and 1984 and will be among the front-runners for 2024 and joins heavy favourites Paris, Rome, Budapest and Hamburg.
“It is my distinct honor today to formerly name the city of Los Angeles as the U.S. bid city to host the 2024 Olympics,” USOC Chief Executive Officer Scott Blackmun told a news conference held just off the beach front in Santa Monica.
The final obstacle facing the city’s candidacy was cleared earlier on Tuesday when the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to pursue a bid for the 2024 Games, giving Los Angeles the chance to become the only city besides London to host the Olympics three times.
