Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington are the cities still in the running for a possible U.S. bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympics.
A person briefed on the U.S. Olympic Committee’s decision-making process told The Associated Press that all four cities are still in consideration. The person requested anonymity because the USOC has not made an official announcement.
Los Angeles hosted the 1932 and 1984 Olympics. The other three cities would be first-time hosts.
The International Olympic Committee will award the Games in 2017.
The last two U.S. candidates both suffered humiliating fourth-place finishes: New York for the 2012 Olympics and Chicago for the 2016 Games that went to Rio de Janeiro.
