THE United States Olympic Committee announced on Tuesday it will bid to host the 2024 Summer Games, but the candidate city won’t be selected until early next year.
Los Angeles, Washington, Boston and San Francisco all made their final pitches for staging the four-yearly showpiece to the USOC board of directors on Tuesday.
“The board voted unanimously to move forward with a bid,” said USOC chairman Larry Probst. “We are going to take our time and pick the city we think has the best chance of winning the competition from other cities around the world.
“This is going to be a really, really difficult decision. That is why we want to make sure we get to the best possible decision.” The United States has won the most medals at the last five Summer Games but it hasn’t hosted a Summer Olympics since Atlanta in 1996.
