Redwood City, CA – Today, Mayor-elect Muriel Bowser issued the following statement following her participation in the District of Columbia’s presentation to the U.S. Olympic Committee in an effort to bring the 2024 Olympic Games to the District:
“It was an honor to represent my hometown and present a compelling case to the U.S. Olympic Committee as to why the District should host the 2024 Olympics. In DC, when we want something, we go for it, and I am proud of the effort our team put forward today. We recognize that hosting the Games would not only be a tremendous opportunity for our city, but a great place to foster international unity and friendly competition among the best athletes in the world.
