1ST LEAD IOC confident US will put up another candidate for 2024 Olympics bid By Andreas Schirmer and John Grafilo, dpa

Kuala Lumpur (dpa) - The International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Tuesday expressed confidence the United States would put forward another candidate to vie to host the 2024 Olympics following the withdrawal of Boston from the bidding.

"We are confident that the US will make the right choice and that they can still put forward a strong candidate by 15 September," IOC spokesman Mark Adams said in a statement.

"USOC [United States Olympic Committee] have made it clear that they would still very much like to see a US city host the Olympic Games 2024," he added.

On Monday, the USOC announced that Boston was ending its bid to host the 2024 Olympics because it failed to garner public support.

The announcement came hours after Boston Mayor Martin Walsh said that he was not ready to sign an Olympic host city contract, which would obligate the city to cover any cost overruns.

Scott Blackmun, head of the USOC, said his organization was still open to a US city hosting the games and would explore other possibilities.

While the decision to abandon the Boston bid is a blow to American hopes of hosting the Games, it serves as a warning to other hopeful cities across the world.

Hamburg, Paris, Rome, Budapest and Toronto have all confirmed their intention to bid for the event.

"Of course we take a great interest in the current developments from the United States," German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) president Alfons Hoermann said. "It shows how important it is to gather strength across the host city and whole country."

Los Angeles, which hosted the Games in 1932 and 1984, is the most likely replacement for Boston although San Francisco and Washington were also defeated in the internal contest held by the USOC.

The United States has not held an Olympics since the 1996 Games were in Atlanta. Bids from New York (2012) and Chicago (2016) were unsuccessful.

"For the IOC it was just an American application from the national Olympic committee (USOC)," IOC president Thomas Bach said. "We are convinced that the USOC will select the most suitable city for a strong US bid."
