Bos­ton failed to de­liver: Bach

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

IOC pres­i­dent Thomas Bach said Bos­ton was firmly to blame for its aborted bid for the 2024 Olympics, say­ing the city failed to de­liver on “prom­ises” made to U.S. Olympic lead­ers when they se­lected the Mas­sachusetts cap­i­tal as the Amer­i­can can­di­date for the games. Bach also said Wed­nes­day the IOC has a “com­mit­ment” from the U.S. Olympic Com­mit­tee that it will put for­ward a bid city for 2024, though he de­clined to en­dorse any other con­tender. Los An­ge­les is con­sid­ered the USOC’s likely choice ahead of the Sept. 15 dead­line for of­fi­cial sub­mis­sion of can­di­dates. ( The As­so­ci­ated Press)
