The 2024 Summer Olympics are over 10 years away, but in a move true to the publicity-mongering fashion of the International Olympic Committee, reports on what cities are bidding on the Games are already surfacing.

Of the 10 cities so far that have discussed putting in a bid to host in 2024, two seem to stand out: San Diego and Tijuana have entered in a joint proposal, responding to the U.S. Olympic Committee’s push for the games to return to the States - of course, with an international twist.

Joint proposals have been made to the IOC before, but haven’t yet been met with any success (neighboring cities sometimes host certain events, like Park City did for Salt Lake City in 2002, but aren’t considered “official host cities” of the Games).
