LA, Paris picked to host future summer Olympics Games

Thomas Bach insisted Pyeongchang 2018 will not be affected by the North Korea crisis

It's an important move for Los Angeles to lock the award of being host of the 2028 Summer Games, which is scheduled to be announced with 2024 Olympics host city, Paris, together by International Olympic Committee on September 13 in Peru.

Both campaign teams summarized their bids in presentations at the 131st IOC Session in Lima, Peru, before the IOC voted to formally confirm the announcements.

The AP adds this will be the third Olympics for both cities, and the Los Angeles games will be the first Summer Olympiad in the USA since 1996.

"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.

The destiny of the Summer Olympics and Paralympics is set for the next 11 years. Over the course of 2015 and 2016, however, Hamburg, Rome and Budapest removed themselves from consideration for various reasons, leaving L.A. and Paris as the only two cities in the running to host the 2024 Games. With failing public and government support the latter two dropped out, leaving Paris and Los Angeles as the last two cities standing.

"Forty-three domestic partnerships - that's three times their initial budget (of around $1 billion for domestic sponsorship) - and the gross amount is $2.8 billion, a remarkable achievement for domestic sponsorship", Coates said. Los Angeles will join the group four years later.

The Associated Press noted the choices were made without the "usual dramatic vote" due to an agreement between the International Olympic Committee and the future host cities. "And their best is as good as it can possibly get for the Olympic Games". Los Angeles protested, and was later selected as host of the 1932 Games.

Bach said any scenario other than holding the Games in Pyeongchang in February next year would be undermining diplomatic efforts for a peaceful solution. The city plans to use the Coliseum in 2028, meaning it will have been part of three Olympics.

Paris was a finalist for 1992, 2008 and 2012. "For the first time in a generation, we're going to bring you an Olympics home".
