Los Angeles Awarded US Bid for 2024 Olympics

Following the death of Boston's 2024 bid, the United States Olympic Committee has awarded the bid to Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon.

Los Angeles had been the runner-up during the previous bidding process eight months ago.

Los Angeles' city council voted unanimously to support the bid. Other bids for the 2024 games include Rome and Paris.

The city last hosted the Summer Olympics in 1984. The IOC will announce their decision of the 2024 host in 2017.
