This Thursday, the United States Olympic Committee will announce which American city will be the national bidder for the Olympic Games in 2024. San Francisco is competing against Washington, Boston and Los Angeles. My friend, Bill Schlough, the CIO of the San Francisco Giants is on the local organizing committee and is asking for our help. Bill has been working on bringing the Olympics to the Bay Area for more than two decades. Things are now down to the wire.
The US selection committee decides on Thursday, which American city will provide a bid for the Olympic games in 2024. Bill is asking everyone to help create some social media buzz to help convince the committee that the Bay Area is the best location for the Olympics.
Bill truly believe that the San Francisco Bay Area would be the perfect place for the world’s greatest athletes to compete. From the temperate climate to the beautiful vistas to our innovative spirit with a population that celebrates diversity and embraces sport, it’s hard to imagine a more suitable setting. I have to agree with him. The Bay Area would be an incredible location for the games of the world.
