Paris to host 2024 Olympics, Los Angeles to follow in 2028

The IOC voted to ratify Los Angeles as the host city of the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games and Paris as the host city of the 2024 Games. But after Hamburg, Rome and Budapest withdrew from the race, they will play host exactly a 100 years on from the last time France held the biggest sporting spectacle on the planet.
Los Angeles and Paris were originally competing to host the 2024 Games.
The 2024 edition will also be the third time that Paris hosts the games.
The city of Los Angeles was formally awarded the 2028 Summer Olympics on Wednesday. With fewer cities vying to host the games as costs connected to the biannual event surge, the International Olympic Committee said at the time it would award the 2028 games simultaneously.
"This historic double allocation is a'win-win-win' situation for the city of Paris, the city of Los Angeles and the IOC", said IOC President Thomas Bach following the vote to approve the decision. "That's why the International Olympic Committee is considering awarding dual bids", said Bergen at time. Initially, Boston was the city chosen to represent the United States in the 2024 bid, but the city dropped out after officials became hesitant of putting taxpayers on the hook for the cost.
"I could not be more happy", he said after the first double allocation since 1921, when Paris won the 1924 and Amsterdam the 1928 Games.

Paris, with a Games budget of 6.8 billion euros ($8.09 billion), had failed with previous attempts to land the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Olympics.
"Bringing the Olympics back home to LA gives us the chance to imagine what our city will look like a decade from now", said Eric Garcetti, Mayor of Los Angeles. "Usually, we have two or three cities crying in a corner, and one glorious victory". This paved the way for Paris as the sole 2024 bidder to win the Games unopposed.
"I think it's a very positive message about the value of the Olympic movement and the value of the Olympic Games", said Sergei Bubka, the Olympic champion pole vaulter, who is an honorary member of the IOC.
