    San Diego and Tijuana make joint proposal to host 2024 Olympics

    Los Angeles, Philadelphia and San Diego/Tijuana were the only cities Blackmun specifically mentioned, saying the other candidates preferred to remain confidential for now. The U.S. hasn't hosted a Summer Olympics since the 1996 Atlanta Games. The IOC is to select the 2024 host city in 2017.


    “We've got plenty of time,” Blackmun told the Associated Press. “There are no specific deadlines on this process.”

    Could it work? With an INTERNATIONAL BORDER in the middle of the two places?

    Re: San Diego and Tijuana make joint proposal to host 2024 Olympics

    Well, we can say adios to this idea:

    Well that was fast. The surprise joint bid from San Diego and Tijuana to host the 2024 Summer Olympics was shot down today by the US Olympic Committee, which just discovered that cross-border bids are against the rules. "The news was delivered as San Diego Mayor Bob Filner and his Tijuana counterpart, Carlos Bustamante, prepared to name a cross-border planning committee within the next week and unveil a logo." LA's still in the running, though.
