The two bid cities in the 2024 Olympic race addressed voters and sports leaders on Tuesday. Only one talked about "the elephant in the room."
That is a possible double vote IOC President Thomas Bach has repeatedly hinted at, which could give Los Angeles and Paris either the 2024 or 2028 rights in September.
"We believe that the '24-'28 conversation makes a lot of sense," LA bid chairman Casey Wasserman told an audience of Olympic stakeholders, "and it's fortunate that the IOC has two great cities to consider."
Minutes later, Paris officials went on stage and focused on winning a contest that is still only about 2024. For now.
