LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti says his city is "the world's greatest stage" as it prepares to compete for the 2024 Summer Olympics, calling it "a quest that Los Angeles was made for." The U.S. Olympic Committee announced that L.A. will be its bid city in an attempt to secure the Summer Games for the first time since it was in Atlanta 19 years ago.
