Reporting from Lima Convention Center in Peru – Paris has been officially awarded the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games and Los Angeles has been given the nod to host the event in 2028, marking the first time in almost a hundred years that two Summer Olympic Games have been awarded on a single day.
There were no surprises in Lima Wednesday and no envelope to tear open to reveal the winning city as instead the International Olympic Committee (IOC) ratified a tripartite agreement with Paris and Los Angeles that will see both cities host the Games for the third time each next decade. A unanimous show of hands made it so, while bid delegations were on hand to watch.
The agreement locks in Los Angeles as host city almost 11 years ahead of the Games Opening Ceremony, the longest time allotted to an organizing committee in history. Paris will host on the 100th anniversary of its previous Games.
Alright it's official! Well we got awhile; you can can kick back in the la-z-boy and crack open a cold one because we have eleven years... but the Olympics are coming back to L.A.!
