Boston will not host the 2024 Olympic games. The U.S. Olympic Committee has cut ties with the city, this according to the Associated Press as told by a person familiar with the decision.

Boston Mayor, Marty Walsh said,

I refuse to mortgage the future of the city away. I refuse to put Boston on the hook for overruns, and I refuse to commit to signing a guarantee that uses taxpayers’ dollars to pay for the Olympics.

Apparently, bad communication, not much public support and an active opposition group are what lead to the bids demise.
