If LA were to host the Olympics in 2024, the Mayor claims he already knows who should light the Olympic Cauldron. None other than past Olympic winner Caitlyn Jenner! The lighting of the cauldron is a huge honor. After all, the person lighting it is usually someone that entirely embodies what the country stands for. Muhammad Ali, Wayne Gretzy and other inspiring athletes have been past lighters.
LA is currently in competition with Paris, Rome, and Hamburg in order to have the olympics there. Mayor Eric Garcetti told TMZ that Jenner was immediately the first person to come to mind for the honor.
