The hosting City for the 2024 Olympics hasn’t been decided just yet, but Los Angeles is gearing up as the decided pick.
Los Angeles Olympic organizers on Monday said they have decided to shelve an expensive plan to build an athlete village, which had been a key feature of the city’s bid to win the 2024 summer games.
Instead The LA 2024 Committee announced the village will not be built — and that if the city becomes the host site for the world competition in eight years, the Olympic and Paralympic athletes will instead be housed at existing residential complexes at the University of California-Los Angeles and the USC residential facilities.
The proposed athletic villages was actually slated to cost around 2 billion dollars to build, which is well over budget not knowing if the games will be hosted here.
