Los Angeles wants to host its third Summer Olympics.

The U.S. Olympic Committee has received a letter from the host of the 1932 and 1984 Games, with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa putting America's second biggest city in the running to host the 2024 Games.

The USOC is deciding whether to bid for the 2024 Games and recently sent a letter to 35 of America's largest cities to gauge interest. In the letter, Villaraigosa says Los Angeles has "enthusiastic interest" in pursuing a bid.

USOC CEO Scott Blackmun says he is "delighted" Los Angeles has expressed interest.

Los Angeles is hoping to join London as the only cities to be a three-time Olympic host.
