San Diego and Tijuana will soon name a "top-notch" committee to pursue a binational effort to win the right to host the 2024 Olympic Games.

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner said Friday that he and Tijuana Mayor Carlos Bustamante are "working together to make this happen."

The U.S. Olympic Committee is already aware that San Diego and Tijuana plan to make a bid.

"Imagine the message we could send to the world in the true spirit of what the Olympics is all about, bringing together people and countries," Filner said. "What better way to do it than with our neighbors south of the border?"
