LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Mayor Eric Garcetti was in Colorado Friday to meet with Olympic officials in an effort to bring the games to the Southland in 2024.

“We look forward to meeting with the United States Olympic Committee in Colorado Springs to discuss how we can present the strongest possible bid for our nation,” he said.

Boston, Washington and San Francisco are also in the running and are expected to send representatives to Colorado Springs to meet with USOC CEO Scott Blackmun and committee chair Larry Probst.

Los Angeles last hosted the Olympics in 1932 and 1984.

The cost of hosting the games could top $3 billion, according to Blackmun.
