IOC shakes up bid process for 2024 Summer Olympics

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- The IOC has shaken up the bidding process for the 2024 Summer Olympics, eliminating the cut-down phase and clearing the way for all the candidates to make it to the final vote.

The decision, announced Sunday at the International Olympic Committee's general assembly, opens the prospect of a crowded field of as many as seven cities battling it out over a two-year global campaign. There will no longer be a short list of finalists, as in previous bid races.

IOC executive director Christophe Dubi tells The Associated Press: "If it's a flood, it's a good problem to have."
