Th e 2024 Summer Olympic host city will be selected soon, and Los Angeles is right in the mix. Along with Paris, Budapest, and cities in Switzerland and Peru, LA is looking to win the selection for a third time.
Sprinter and LA native Allyson Felix took on the role of key speaker when presenting the city to the Olympic Committee. Felix, a six time Olympic gold medalist and three time silver medalist, was selected by the L.A.’s bid team to publicly address concerns of the newly elected President. "“We just finished our presidential election, and some of you may question America’s commitment to its founding principles,” Felix said. “I have one message for you: Please don’t doubt us. America’s diversity is our greatest strength.”
Promoting its diversity and freedom of expression, Los Angeles hopes to bring the Olympics back to America since 1996 during the Atlanta Olympic games.
