Why try to have it someplace where people there REALLY do NOT want it?
Probabaly will be given to Los Angles, which will probabaly be happy to have it…
Due to continued low public support, the United States Olympic Committee and officials from the local bid group, Boston 2024, “have reached a mutual agreement to withdraw Boston’s bid to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games,” the organizations said in a joint statement Monday.
The USOC will now explore alternative cities, which many experts believe would be two-time Olympic host Los Angeles.
“The USOC would very much like to see an American city host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2024,” said USOC chief executive officer Scott Blackmun, in a statement. “We will immediately begin to explore whether we can do so on a basis consistent with our guiding principles, to which we remain firmly committed.
“We understand the reality of the timeline that is before us,” he said.
The USOC faces a September deadline to name a US bid city.
Local bid chairman Steve Pagliuca said in the statement that the “Boston 2024 Partnership will offer our support and the extensive knowledge we have gained in developing our Bid 2.0 to any American city that may choose to participate in the 2024 bidding process going forward.”Share on Facebook
