USOC Board: We're Bidding For 2024
The United States will bid for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Whether the bid city is Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco or Washington, D.C., however, is yet to be determined. Following one-hour pitches (40-minute presentations, followed by 20 minutes for Q&A) from the four cities Tuesday in Redwood City, California, the United States Olympic Committee announced it would indeed put forth a bid for the 2024 summer Games. The International Olympic Committee’s executive board will determine finalists in the spring of 2016, and the full IOC will vote on the host city in September 2017.
