IOC NAMES 2024 AND 2028 OLYMPIC GAMES HOST

The International Olympic Committee has settled on Paris and Los Angeles as the host for the 2024 and 2028 Olympic games.

The two cities were settled after Budapest, Rome and Hamburg withdrew from the race to host the flagship event.

Paris and Los Angeles are the host for the next two and three editions of the Olympics and must decide between themselves which country want to host the 2024 edition and who will take the 2028 edition.

Paris lost out to London in the race for the 2012 Games while Los Angeles hosted the Games in 1932 and 1984 but must decide who host in 2024 and 2028.

If no agreement is made, the IOC has indicated that they will vote to select who host in 2024.

IOC president Thomas Bach told reporters after the meeting that he hoped the agreement would be reached next month.

Los Angeles organizers said they were “thrilled” with the decision, adding: “We look forward to working with the IOC and Paris in the weeks ahead to turn this golden opportunity into a golden future together.”
