Making a 2024 bid: Would you want the Olympics in the District?

Beyond Brazil, locations for all future summer Olympics have not yet been chosen. So don’t count D.C. out for 2024.

Dan Knise, president and CEO of the Washington-Baltimore 2012 Regional Coalition, has reportedly said he is looking into a 2024 bid for the games for the area. The discussion have been informal, according to the Associated Press.

Martin Austermuhle, part of the Post’s Local Blog Network, wrote Monday that an exploratory committee is looking into U.S. bids for 2024, which may include Chicago, New York and Philadelphia. The International Olympic Committee, he wrote, will make a choice in 2017.
