Paris to host 2024 and Los Angeles 2028 Olympics


Paris will host 2024 Olympics and Los Angeles will host 2028 Olympics. The International Olympic Committee named two cities as hosts for the 2024 and 2028 Olympics at the same time. The IOC voted in June to award the 2028 Games at the same time as 2024. Both cities wanted to host the 2024 event, before Los Angeles agreed to wait an extra four years after the IOC made guarantees on funding. Paris and Los Angeles had been the only two candidates for the 2024 Games after Hamburg, Rome and Budapest withdrew from the race. The 2024 Games will mark the third time Paris has staged the Olympics, coming exactly 100 years after they last hosted the Games. The 2028 Olympics will be the first held in the United States since the chaotic 1996 Games in Atlanta. It will also mark the third time that Los Angeles has hosted the Olympics following successful editions in 1932 and 1984.
