VIDEO: Los Angeles may be U.S. Olympic bid city for 2024 Summer Games

The United States Olympic Committee said Wednesday that if it makes a bid for the 2024 Summer Games, Los Angeles will carry the flag.

USOC chairman Larry Probst said in a statement Wednesday "We continue to think that a U.S. bid for the 2024 Games can be successful."

 

Los Angeles has hosted the Summer Olympics twice previously - in 1932 and 1984 - and a successful 2024 bid would put the games back in the United States' second-largest city exactly 40 years after its last games.
