6 U.S. cities in running for 2024 Summer Olympics, according to report

Donald Miralle

The USOC will pare down a list of six major U.S. cities to two or three in a meeting Tuesday.

The United States Olympic Committee is considering Boston, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., for its bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics, according to Liz Clarke of the Washington Post.

The USOC will meet in Boston on Tuesday to pare the list of six cities down to two or three. The final nomination is expected to be made by the end of the year. The International Olympic Committee will pick the host city in 2017.

The process for 2024 bidding began in February 2013 when the USOC sent letters to mayors of 35 cities to gauge interest in hosting. In addition to the six cities still in the running, New York and Philadelphia also expressed interest in the bid, but bowed out in May.

The last Summer Olympics to take place on American soil was in Atlanta in 1996. Los Angeles is the only city out of the six vying for the bid that has previously held a Summer Olympics, hosting in both 1932 and 1984. The USOC made bids for New York in 2012 and Chicago in 2016, but both cities were passed over by the IOC. The USOC sat out the bidding process for the 2020 Summer Games, which will take place in Tokyo.
