Los Angeles is considered to be a front-runner in the bidding race to host the 2024 Summer Olympics. Paris is thought to be a strong contender as well.

And it appears as if leaders of the Paris 2024 bid are checking out their competition.

According to NBC Los Angeles and the L.A. Times, the rival bidders spent time Wednesday taking pictures and recording video of venues on the University of Southern California campus.

“While surprising, we have no objection to Paris 2024 leaders wanting to tour our venues because they are not secrets,” LA 2024 spokesman Jeff Millman said.

Rome and Budapest are also bidding on the 2024 Games. The IOC will announce the winner at its conference in Lima, Peru, in September 2017.
