Paris to host 2024 Olympics, Los Angeles to hold 2028 edition

The deal, first reported by the Los Angeles Times on Monday, locks in host cities for two Summer Games at once, an unusual step that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) made a decision to take in June.In May, Mr Garcetti said Los Angeles would not be opposed to hosting in 2028, remarking that “an Olympic win is an Olympic win”.With their respective agreements to host the Olympics, Paris and Los Angeles will join London as the only cities to host the Olympics at least three different times. The 2024 Games in Paris?It will mark the third time that both cities have hosted sport’s showpiece event.The IOC had earlier hailed the Los Angeles and Paris bids to host the 2024 Olympic Games.The 2028 Summer Olympic Games will be held in Los Angeles, US media reported Monday.But there were some hurdles to be overcome, with Los Angeles needing to make sure financial deals it had secured for 2024 would still be viable four years later.The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that bid officials reached an agreement with the International Olympic Committee, based on an unnamed source close to the negotiation.Garcetti must also still get the city council to approve a detailed plan for how LA will stage the Olympics.A spokesman for the LA 2024 committee did not immediately respond to a request for comment.The two cities were the only ones left in the race for 2024 after Budapest, Hamburg and Rome withdrew.
