USOC Chairman Signals Intent to Bid for 2024 Games

By  | 

The chairman of the U.S. Olympic Committee says "it is our intention to bid" for the 2024 Olympics if a number of criteria are met - the strongest indication yet that the United States will put forth a bid city before the end of next year.

Among the requirements chairman Larry Probst listed were finding the right message, technical plan, leader, financial support and governmental support.

In a conference call Tuesday following the USOC's quarterly board meeting, Probst says a lot of things still have to fall into place for the USOC to bid for 2024 but that the federation remains focused on the opportunity.

A small group from the USOC has been visiting potential host cities, including Boston, Dallas, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco and Washington.
