Congratulations to Bean Town!
The 2024 Olympics and Paralympics are creeping up on us, and it's time for the world to get ready!
So, where will these summer games be held? Well, we're not exactly sure… but we do know that Boston has won the bid to represent the United States!
The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) had a board meeting at the Denver International Airport, and Boston, which has never hosted the Olympic games, got the bid over Los Angeles, who has hosted the Olympics twice.
"It is an exceptional honor for Boston to be chosen as the U.S. representative in the running for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. This selection is in recognition of our city's talent, diversity and global leadership. Our goal is to host an Olympic and Paralympic Games that are innovative, walkable and hospitable to all. Boston hopes to welcome the world's greatest athletes to one of the world's great cities."
Boston is one of the nation's oldest cities and is certainly worthy of this bid!
Congrats to them and hopefully everyone else wants to have the games there too!
