It's official: five cities are in the running to host the 2024 Olympics.

The IOC announced the final list of bidders Wednesday: Budapest, Hamburg, Los Angeles, Paris and Rome.

The deadline for submission of bid entries passed at Tuesday at midnight in Switzerland.

There were no surprises as the five previously declared bid cities were on the list.

Toronto decided against a last-minute bid, as did the Azerbaijan capital of Baku.

The IOC will select the host city in September 2017.
