City leaders from Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington have met with top executives at the U.S. Olympic Committee to hear about the nuts and bolts of bidding for the 2024 Olympics.

Among those attending Friday were Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. Giants owner Larry Baer was among those representing San Francisco, and bid chairman Russ Ramsey was there for Washington.

These were low-key meetings, in keeping with the USOC's overall strategy as it decides whether to bid for 2024 and, if so, which city would have the best chance of winning.

The USOC will decide whether to bid by early next year. The Olympics will be awarded in 2017.
