We might not being hosting the next America’s Cup, but San Francisco remains in the running to host the 2024 Summer Olympics. Or rather, San Francisco remains on the United States Olympic Committee’s short list of four cities from which the Committee will pick the U.S. contender for the games, if one is selected at all.
The decision of whether or not to bid will be made in early 2015, at which point the U.S. contender city would be selected as well. The International Olympic Committee will announce the winning host city in 2017.
Boston, Los Angeles and Washington D.C. are the other three U.S. cities on the USOC’s list. Dallas and San Diego were cut while New York and Philadelphia withdrew.
