Orlando will host the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials on Feb. 3, 2024.
The top three men and women at trials are expected to make up the team for the Paris Games.
Early favorites include Emily Sisson and Keira D’Amato, who this year became the two fastest U.S. female marathon runners in history, and Galen Rupp, Conner Mantz and Scott Fauble.
Orlando, the first Florida host in marathon trials history, was chosen while Chattanooga, Tennessee, was also reportedly in the running.
Atlanta held the last Olympic marathon trials on Feb. 29, 2020, less than a month before the Tokyo Games were postponed from 2020 to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Orlando will be the farthest south host in Olympic marathon trials history, displacing Houston, which hosted in 1992 and 2012.
The site for the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials has not been announced.
