Paris and Los Angeles to host 2024 and 2028 Olympics

The Games were previously staged in Paris in 1900 and 1924, and in Los Angeles in 1932 and 1984.

On the dais shortly after the vote, the different protagonists of this game diplomatico-sportsman have displayed their relief, pushing carefully the questions on 2028.

"Members of the Evaluation Commission have used the terms "forward-looking", "innovative", "vibrant" and "cool" to describe the Los Angeles candidature, and "historical", "cultural", "iconic" and "amazing backdrops" for that of Paris", said Patrick Baumann, IOC member and chair of the 2024 Evaluation Commission.

"However, whatever the description, it truly is a tale of two great Olympic cities". The three social networking giants are said to have each offered the tournament's United States rights holder Fox Sports "tens of millions of dollars" to stream games in their domestic market as they ramp up their interest in premium sports content.

"I am committed to put all my energy to reach this agreement for Paris to reconnect with this lovely olympic adventure she has been waiting for 100 years", stated the municipal official in paris.

Those losses deepened a rift between the U.S. Olympic Committee and the Swiss-based IOC that LA 2024 and a new team of American officials have worked hard to heal.

Before you run to the end of the press conference: "The Parisians, the French people know that we are here for this historic moment and that the Games will return to Paris ".

Paris also failed with a 1992 bid and pinned its hopes on hosting in 2024, exactly 100 years after its previous Summer Games.

It's just not clear which city will host in which year. And now he has done a further service to the Movement by accepting that the hosts of the 2024 and 2028 Summer Olympics can both be decided at the IOC Session in Lima on September 13. The application paris was headed by the president and Emmanuel Macron, who said that after three nominations unhappy France "is ready (for Games), she expects".

His us counterpart, Donald Trump has not made the trip. The last Summer Olympics held in the United States were the 1996 games in Atlanta.

"Today this is a great day for the Olympic Games, the Olympic Movement and these wonderful Olympic cities". His consummate schmoozing of Olympic bigwigs over the past two years, performed with all the passion of his political campaigns, has paid off, and what comes next appears a formality. "Thanks to the members of the International Olympic Committee".
