Olympic champion swimmer and high school senior Katie Ledecky is among five presenters for Washington, D.C.’s bid for the 2024 Olympics, according to the Washington Post.

D.C. 2024 will pitch its bid at a U.S. Olympic Committee board meeting in San Francisco on Tuesday. As will the other finalists for a potential U.S. bid — Boston, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Ledecky, 17, will join the mayor-elect of Washington, D.C., former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue and Washington Capitals and Wizards owner Ted Leonsis, according to the report.

The mayors of all four candidate cities will be on hand, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The USOC could announce which city it chooses for a 2024 bid as early as Tuesday — assuming it will bid — or might wait until early next year.

Other 2024 Olympic bids will come from Rome, Germany and possibly Paris and South Africa, among others.
