AP - TD Garden in Boston would be the site of the Olympic and Paralympic basketball finals and Olympic gymnastics and trampoline if the city wins a bid to host the 2024 games.

The venue announcement was made Thursday by Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, Boston 2024 Partnership Chairman Steve Pagliuca, Delaware North's Boston Holdings Chief Executive Officer Charlie Jacobs, TD Garden President Amy Latimer and Olympians Aly Raisman and Jo Jo White.

The 19,600-seat TD Garden opened in 1995 and is home to the Boston Celtics, Boston Bruins, Beanpot ice hockey tournaments and music concerts.

The arena previously hosted the 1996 and 2000 U.S. Gymnastic Trials and the 2001 and 2014 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, as well as the NBA Finals and Stanley Cup Final.
