The United States Olympic Committee on Tuesday sent a letter to the mayors of 35 US cities inviting them to throw their names into the ring as a potential host for the 2024 Summer Olympics.

Letters went to the 25 largest cities in the country, plus 10 others that had previously expressed an interest in hosting. Washington at Baltimore are on the list, along with previous hosts Los Angeles, Atlanta and St. Louis.

There is no guarantee the USOC will submit an Applicant City for 2024 to the International Olympic Committee. The US did not bid for the 2020 games, which will be awarded in September to Tokyo, Madrid or Istanbul. Previous US bids for the Summer Games of 2012 (New York) and 2016 (Chicago) fell short.
