Paris will host the 2024 Olympics Games and Los Angeles was awarded the 2028 Games after the International Olympic Committee crowned two cities at the same time in a historic first on Wednesday.
Paris, which unsuccessfully bid for the Olympics in 1992, 2008 and 2012 will organise the Games in seven years’ time and the Californian city will welcome them four years later in what IOC President Thomas Bach called a “win-win-win” situation.
President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday hailed the decision to award the 2024 Olympics to Paris as a “victory for France”.
Macron said after the International Olympic Committee vote in Lima that rubber-stamped the historic double award of the 2024 Games to Paris and the 2028 Olympics to Los Angeles that “the whole country must get behind” the event.Do you ever witness anything interesting or exciting?
