  1. He's the article.. I used Google translator for you guys. It was published yesterday. Maybe they are talking in private with the City of New York, but we'll see.

    Descarta Comité Olímpico de EU candidatura de Tijuana-San Diego para JO 2024

    Tijuana.- Tijuana. - In an interview with the U.S. newspaper San Diego Union Tribune, Scott Blackmun, United States Olympic Committee Director (USOC), ruled out the possibility of the Tijuana-San Diego bid for the 2024 Olympic Games.

    The director told the San Diegan newspaper that the chances of a joint bid led by former Mayor of San Diego, Bob Filner, are zero.
    He also mentioned that the United States will seek to host the 2024 Olympics, and that the cities have raised interest for the [uS] nomination are Washington, Dallas, Los Angeles and New York.
    He noted that San Diego could also be a candidate, but independently and reaffirmed that a joint bid is very unlikely to happen.
    He added that the U.S. Olympic Committee is seeking cities with the largest sport infrastructure to host the 2024 games.
  2. The US used to be the only country sending as many bids as they wanted, i think the last time the US was represented by more than 1 city was in the 60s, but not anymore due to new rules of the IOC? There were as many as 5 American cities bidding for the Games in the 50s i think.

  3. 2024 should go to the US (or at most 2028) is just math, the odds of the United States hosting the games in 2024 are very hight. If we look at the past, since the 1960s, the United States has hosted the Games in every decade except 1970s and 2010s. Let's see

    1900s = 1904 in St. Louis, MO

    1910s = NO

    1920s = NO

    1930s = Lake Placid in NY and Los Angeles in 1932. Twice (interesting)

    1940s = No games

    1950s = Games returned to previous winner cities.

    1960s = Squaw Valley, CA in 1960

    1970s = Denver won, but they rejected it, so it went to an European city.

    1980s = Lake Placid again in 1980 and Los Angeles in 1984. Twice (interesting)

    1990s = Atlanta 1996

    2000s = Salt Lake City in 2002

    2010s = Chicago lost for 2016 (first gap since the 70s)

    2020s = There are four Olympics left for that decade in which the United States would be interested in 2024, 2026 and 2028... It could be in either 2024, 2026 or 2028, but no later than 2032... What do you guys think?
