Los Angeles, California is in for the bidding to host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games. They are 1 of 4 cities bidding, including Rome, Budapest and Paris.

The International Olympic Committee has announced the receipt of 4 Candidature Files to host the 2024 Olympic Games. In what is typically a multi-step process, this is the first deadline on the route to hosting the Olympic Games where cities must officially opt in, or out, of hosting.

In its early notes, the IOC says that all 4 candidate cities have artfully met the new requirements upon hosting the Olympic Games with an eye toward avoiding the sort of economic disasters that still plagues, for example, Athens, Greece, the hosts of the 2004 Olympic Games.

“Los Angeles, Rome, Budapest and Paris are all submitting projects fully in line with Olympic Agenda 2020,” IOC President Thomas Bach said. “It is impressive to see how they have incorporated the Olympic project into the long-term development plans of their city, region and country. Coming from different starting points, for all four there is a clear focus on sustainable development, legacy and in particular how the facilities are going to be used after the Olympic Games. We are delighted to have four extremely strong candidatures and look forward to a fascinating competition.”

Sorry guys but this time it’s the turn of France.

Great video, great advertisement, but hardly something I’d describe as a “hype” video. Nonetheless, I think LA would be an excellent host city. It’s been a little while since the summer games were in the United States
