USOC pick Boston to host 2024 Olympics

Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington were also vying to be the candidate city but were not chosen.

The US Olympic Committee board of directors, meeting in Denver, chose Boston after multiple rounds of voting and what a USOC statement called “spirited discussion” among the 15-member panel.

The four cities were the finalists from a 22-month evaluation process.

Boston will now enter a global field expected to field strong candidates from Italy, Germany and France.
