Dr. Dre Advocates For The 2024 Olympics To Take Place In Los Angeles
Training for the 2024 Olympics isn’t solely reserved for the athletes. According to NBC Sports, a committee based in Los Angeles plans to duke it out with Paris, France to become the Olympics’ host city in the next seven years.
Spin highlights that Magic Johnson, Jason Collins and Dr. Dre join a list of notable officials who’ll serve on the LA 2024 board. The site also adds that the latter reigns as one of the only musicians to be recruited for the bidding process.
“The diverse group of 117 leaders and innovators are drawn from the sports, entertainment, media, technology, higher education, business, philanthropic and public sectors in California and around the world, helping LA 2024 develop a Games plan that will serve the Olympic Movement in 2024 and beyond,” the site’s mission statement reads.
The decision will be made on Sept. 13.
