IOC awards Paris 2024, Los Angeles 2028 Olympics
International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Wednesday made a historic decision by simultaneously awarding Olympic Games 2024 to Paris and 2028 to Los Angeles.
The IOC put the rubber stamp on a pre-determined conclusion.
While celebrating the decision, Paris and Los Angeles both expressed their excitement in bringing home the Olympic Games. Both cities will host their third Olympics.
The Paris Games will come on the 100th anniversary of its last turn - a milestone that would have made the French capital the sentimental favourite had only 2024 been up for grabs.
