Ways to Subscribe

The organization working to bring the Olympics to SoCal in 2024 is currently in Rio. We check-in with one of their officials on the status of LA's bid.

The 2020 games will be held in Tokyo but we still don't know where the summer games after that will take place. A group called LA 2024 has been working since August 2015 to bring those Olympics here to Southern California.

Jeff Millman, LA 2024's communications officer, spoke with Take Two's Alex Cohen from Brazil. When they spoke, Millman was outside eagerly waiting for the torch to pass by. Millman shed some light on the new sports that have been added to the 2020 games and how it would affect the 2024 bid, the LA's new venue renderings, why the LA 2024 committee was in Rio and more.
