The LA 2024 bid committee has launched a series of town hall meetings with Olympic and Paralympic athletes nationwide.
The private group held its first gathering in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Thursday night, seeking input as it continues to work on its proposal for the 2024 Summer Olympics.
More than 30 athletes attended the meeting. Gary Hall Sr., president of the U.S. Olympian and Paralympian Assn., said: “We are excited to partner with LA 2024.”
Additional meetings are planned in the coming months as the bid process continues toward an International Olympic Committee vote in September 2017.
