LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) The IOC praised the four cities bidding for the 2024 Olympics for proposing a maximum use of existing and temporary facilities.

Los Angeles, Paris, Rome and Budapest, Hungary, delivered their first detailed bid files to the International Olympic Committee by Wednesday's deadline.

IOC President Thomas Bach says the projects were ''fully in line'' with his ''Olympic Agenda 2020'' program, which seeks to cut the costs of bidding for and hosting the games.

Bach says ''for all four, there is a clear focus on sustainable development, legacy and in particular how the facilities are going to be used after the Olympic Games.''

Jacqueline Barrett, the IOC associate director dealing with bid cities, says the four ''are making use of an extremely high percentage of existing and temporary venues, possibly the most ever.''

The IOC selects the host city in September 2017.
