In 2013, Eric Garcetti‘s first act as mayor of Los Angeles was writing a letter to Olympic officials to pursue a 2024 Olympic bid.
On Tuesday, Garcetti spoke to the Association of National Olympic Committees, a gathering of more than 1,000 delegates from around the world, about the LA 2024 bid.
Garcetti was joined by Olympic champions Allyson Felix and Janet Evans, LA 2024 bid chairman Casey Wasserman and USOC chairman Larry Probst in delivering speeches as part of a 20-minute presentation in Doha, Qatar.
Los Angeles, Paris and Budapest are vying to host the 2024 Olympics.
International Olympic Committee members will vote in September to choose the 2024 host city.Follow @nzaccardi
