U.S. Olympic Committee Pulls Boston's 2024 Olympic Bid

The city of Boston and the U.S. Olympic Committee severed ties after a board teleconference Monday, USOC spokesman Patrick Sandusky told The Associated Press.
The decision throws the bid process - and hopes that the U.S. will host another Olympics - into flux. Only seven weeks remain before cities have to be officially nominated. If the USOC wants to stay in the race, Los Angeles is its likely choice.
The Boston bid soured within days of its beginning in January, beset by poor communication and an active opposition group that kept public support low.
