mr.bernham Posted May 30, 2014 Report Share Posted May 30, 2014 The last thread was locked, use this new thread to discuss America's 2024 bids or future bids the USOC may make. Currently the cities of Boston, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, and Washington DC are bidding domestically to become the United States bid city during the 2024 Summer Games bid race. In addition to a large number of American Cities attempting to snatch the games the French and German national Olympic committees are in the process of creating their own bids. At this point in time the IOC is facing heavy criticism by the international media and public, this has resulted in lack luster participation in the 2022 Winter Games bid race. It is unknown how the IOC will fully respond to this criticism, although based on recent comments by top ranking IOC officials the organization appears to be shrugging it all off. Personally, I suspect that the USOC will select Los Angeles as their candidate city and that Paris or Berlin will launch bids. If this scenario does occur I feel that the US' chances of winning this cycle could be decreased and I suspect that either Paris or Berlin will host the games with LA being a close second. After this defeat I am positive that the US will bid again (depending on the 2024 results) and that they could be joined by Toronto. So that's my rant...anyone else?
