GOVERNOR O’MALLEY ISSUES STATEMENT SUPPORTING THE LAUNCH OF THE NATIONAL CAPITAL REGION’S 2024 OLYMPIC BID 

 

ANNAPOLIS, MD (September 4, 2014) — Governor Martin O’Malley today issued the following statement on the launch of efforts to bring the 2024 Summer Olympic and Paralympic games to the National Capital Region:

“I’m excited to join Gov. McAuliffe and Mayor Gray to support the National Capital Region’s bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics. Here in Maryland, we’re focused on doing the things that work to create jobs, spur innovation and expand opportunity. As one of the greatest sporting events our world has ever known, the Olympics is one of the best diplomatic tools we have to transcend the walls that divide us and provide a spark of hope for the next generation. Hosting the Olympics will foster a lasting sports, tourism and cultural legacy for our nation while also highlighting Maryland and the Capital Region’s seamless coordination, strength, diversity, and vibrancy on the ultimate global stage.”
