Paris for 2024, Los Angeles for 2028

Paris and Los Angeles Confirmed As Hosts For 2024 and 2028 Olympics

Paris will host the 2024 Games while Los Angeles takes 2028.

International Olympic Committee members, by a unanimous show of hands, voted their approval at a session in Lima, Peru, ending an unusual bid competition that resulted in two winners as Paris was simultaneously given the 2024 Games.

It'll be third time hosting the games for both parties.

The evaluation commission signed off on those Monday, saying that although details need to be finalized, it is confident LA can host in 2028.

And Eric Garcetti, the Mayor of Los Angeles, added: "Bringing the Olympics back home to LA gives us the chance to imagine what our city will look like a decade from now".

It marked the final act of a campaign that had been stripped of the usual intrigue ever since Paris and Los Angeles agreed to carve up 2024 and 2028 in July following encouragement from the IOC.

The IOC considered both bids to be strong, leading to today's historic event.

The federal ban could lead to pressure on state and local governments to ditch Kaspersky products as well. The directive gives agencies 30 days to determine whether they are using any Kaspersky products.

Past Olympic hosts had seven years to prepare from when they were awarded the Games to their staging, compared to LA's 11.

"Today, I am delighted to invite you to join the great family of Parisians, a family which belongs to the world", said the Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo.

In unusual circumstances, the International Olympic Committee announced two host cities at the same event, with Bach calling it a "golden opportunity" to award two Games simultaneously. Bach is in Lima for the Wednesday IOC session to vote on the host cities for the next Olympics.

Paris 2024 officials hugged and cheered following the vote, basking in victory after three previous failed bids to land the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Olympics.

Paris will site events across iconic venues, and will build an Olympic Village along the Seine River at Saint-Denis. Following an attack in Munich in 1972 in which a Palestinian terrorist group killed 11 Israeli team members and Montreal going deeply into debt to host in 1976, no other cities bid to host those Games.

The race began early in 2015 with a different US candidate but the abysmal public support for Boston forced that city to part ways with the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) who turned to Los Angeles instead just days before the application deadline. "Both cities are very enthusiastic about the Games and are promoting the Olympic spirit in a fantastic way", Bach said in a press release. At the time, they committed to working out a deal that culminated with each city getting an Olympics on Wednesday. That city commissioned a poll showing 88 percent of its residents supported bringing the Olympics back to Southern California.

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