IOC confirms Paris will host 2024 Olympic games, LA for 2028

Beyonce, DiCaprio and a galaxy of stars team up for hurricane relief

"These are two great cities from two great countries with a great Olympic history".

Los Angeles will benefit from having longer to get ready for the 2028 summer Olympics after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) chose to award the hosting rights to two Games at its session vote in Lima this week, mayor Eric Garcetti said. The last American city to bid for the Summer Games was Chicago, losing the 2016 Olympic vote to Rio de Janeiro.

The evaluation commission signed off on those Monday, saying that although details need to be finalized, it is confident LA can host in 2028. "At such a time, the IOC will take advantage of the stability for the next 11 years", was commended in the preamble the president of the global Committee Thomas Bach.

"Now L.A. 2028 has a golden opportunity, with four more years to prepare and a $2 billion contribution from the International Olympic Committee, to redefine how hosting the Games can benefit host communities".

The decision marks the first time the International Olympic Committee has granted two Summer Olympics at once. Only four have remained to the vote. "For the first time in a generation, we are bringing the Games back to the City of Angels".

The IOC also said the double choices of L.A. and Paris are considered historic, and the last time two hosts were decided at once was in 1921, when Paris was chosen to host the 1924 games and Amsterdam was chosen for the 1928 games. "I am confident that no matter where the Olympic Games would be held. baseball/softball would be a great part of the Olympic sports program".


Paris's bid, in general, was focused only on 2024 and not interested in hosting four years later.

As many as six cities were involved as bidders.

Both Paris's bid co-chair Tony Estanguet and LA bid chairman Casey Wasserman are to stay on and lead the host cities' preparations, mayors Anne Hidalgo and Garcetti confirmed in a news conference after the announcement. The L.A. team quickly marshalled its resources, working around the clock to reach an agreement with the USOC under which Los Angeles would take over for Boston.

But strong opposition and declining support sunk that bid, which died when Mayor Marty Walsh said in July 2015 that he would not sign the host city contract required by the IOC.

Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028 was ratified in the Peruvian capital Lima on Wednesday.

"I want to thank the people of my city, the Angelenos who have believed in the Olympics for over a century", Garcetti said then.
