LA 2024 Chairman Casey Wasserman Statement on Budapest 2024

"All of us at LA 2024 are disappointed in this news. We have the highest respect for Budapest 2024's pioneering approach to designing and promoting their bid, and we look forward to continued friendship with our Hungarian colleagues.

The world is entering an era of unprecedented change. This is the 'new reality' for the Olympic Movement and it calls for new thinking.

We believe that now, more than ever, the IOC must focus on selecting a 2024 Host City that redefines sustainability, connects the Olympic Movement and its benefits to the world's youth like never before and encourages future cities to bid for their Games.

With 88% public support, and even higher support from young Angelenos, LA 2024 offers an innovative, low-risk and truly sustainable solution to help secure the future of the Olympic Movement in 2024 and beyond."
