USOC looking at limited number of bid candidates
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - The newest American member of the IOC believes there are only a few U.S. cities that could realistically contend for the 2024 Olympics if the country decides to move forward with a bid next year.
U.S. Olympic Committee chairman Larry Probst said Tuesday: "I think it's got to be a city that is compelling to people around the world, that resonates with all of the IOC membership. That's not a long list of cities, realistically.''
Moments after being sworn in as a member of the International Olympic Committee, Probst said the issue will be discussed by the USOC at its meetings in December and a timetable on the process to select the possible bid city could be created.
