Big news for those who can’t quite bring themselves to go down to Brazil for the 2016 Olympic games: The U.S. Olympic Committee has officially announced that it will bid to host the 2024 event, though it has not yet chosen which city to put forward. Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., all presented their plans to the committee on Tuesday, and one of them will be punished selected as the official bid city by February. Thankfully, mayor Bill de Blasio shut down speculation of a potential New York City bid for the Games back in May.
