2024 Olympics
LOS ANGELES — The U.S. Olympic Committee on Tuesday named Los Angeles as its candidate for the 2024 Games, replacing Boston’s soured bid and marking a comeback for LA’s dream of becoming a three-time Olympic host.
The announcement by USOC CEO Scott Blackmun came under a summer sun at Santa Monica Beach, where the city’s plan calls for staging beach volleyball on the site where the sport was founded.
“I want to thank Los Angeles for standing up, once again, as America’s bid city,” Blackmun said, adding that LA’s proposal squares with the Olympic movement’s goals of watching the bottom line while investing in projects that dovetail with community needs.
Mayor Eric Garcetti said the city was inspired to bring the games back to the U.S. for the first time in 28 years.
