(ATR) The US Olympic Committee hopes to strike a deal with Los Angeles to host the 2024 Summer Olympics.
USOC chair and IOC member Larry Probst says the board of directors engaged in a “thorough and thoughtful” discussion of its options for 2024 during a meeting held at the Denver International Airport Wednesday.
Probst says USOC CEO Scott Blackmun has been designated to work with the city of Los Angeles in the coming weeks to work out details for a 2024 bid.
“We hope to finalize terms that benefit both the city of Los Angeles and the Olympic movement in the United States so that we can submit a world-class been to the IOC by their September 15 deadline,” said Probst in a teleconference with reporters.
