It's Official! Paris to host 2024, Los Angeles 2028 Olympics

International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach speaks during the opening IOC session in Lima on Sept. 13

Paris was awarded the 2024 summer Olympics and Los Angeles the 2028 Games on Wednesday, as the International Olympic Committee (IOC) broke with decades of tradition to vote on a unique double allocation.

The IOC decision in Lima has made both the two cities three-time Summer Olympics hosts as Paris hosted the games in 1900 and 1924 and Los Angeles hosted the games in 1932 and 1984.

Two other U.S. Olympic host cities, Squaw Valley, Calif. and St. Louis, Mo., also participated in the salute.

They followed that up with the Games of the 23rd Olympiad, in 1984.

At Gates Street Elementary school in Los Angeles' Lincoln Heights neighbourhood, children enrolled in the city's Better Educated Students for Tomorrow (BEST) programme and rotated through Olympic themed sport stations. "A town that has Olympics in their DNA", Garcetti said.

Sykes noted that there is tremendous Olympic enthusiasm in the second largest city of the United States.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti pledged to IOC that Los Angeles would "illuminate the future" of the Olympic and Paralympic Movements in July.

"In any case there will be speeches between the IOC Executive Board and the IWF because we can not ignore the problem of the percentage of the positive cases in this sport, which frankly are quite embarrassing", Carraro said.

Los Angeles promised to deliver a low-priced model for the Olympic Games and would make LA 2028 one of the greenest Games in history.

"With more than 15,000 volunteers already signed up through our volunteer programme, we're excited to harness Los Angeles' spirit of volunteerism now and through the Games to show the next generation the benefits of playing sports and to serve all our communities".

According to Sykes, the first most important measure to make the Games green is "not to build anything new, but to use existing infrastructure".

"We continue to prepare for what promises to be a superb Tokyo 2020, congratulate Paris and look forward to working in full partnership with both organising committees and the IOC to ensure spectacular men's and women's rugby sevens". But the biggest headache for host cities remains the cost of transport infrastructure to bring hundreds of thousands of spectators to events.

"It's something we are very proud of", said Sykes.
