LA 2024 leaders traveled to Doha, Qatar to make the first presentation to the Olympic family at the Association of National Olympic Committees [ANOC].
The presentation featured remarks by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, the only female track-and-field athlete in Olympic history to win six gold medals, Allyson Felix, LA 2024 Chairman Casey Wasserman, LA 2024 Vice Chair and Director of Athlete Relations Janet Evans and two US IOC Members – IOC Executive Board Member Angela Ruggiero and USOC Chairman Larry Probst.
LA 2024 pledged to deliver a “Transformative Games” to guarantee greater sustainability and youth connection for future Games.
Mayor Garcetti set out LA 2024’s commitment not just to hosting an outstanding Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2024, but also to ensuring future success and relevancy for the Olympic Movement. He said: “We know that LA 2024 must not only deliver great Games, they must also deliver transformative Games. And we know that we can help transform the Games because we are a transformative city that reflects creativity and innovation – and because the Olympics are in our DNA.”
Mayor Garcetti went on to describe how ensuring America “remains actively engaged in the world” was a core motivation behind LA 2024’s mission to bring the Games to the United States for the first time in a generation.
