Boston has backed out of its bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympics, following substantial opposition from the city’s residents. The news was confirmed through the organizing committee’s Twitter account, and it is rumored that Los Angeles may pick up the bid. Despite beating Washington, D.C.; San Francisco and Los Angeles as the USOC’s official U.S. bid representative, the Massachusetts capital will relinquish this coveted opportunity as the city’s taxpayers believe its financial burden outweighs its benefits.
