Olympic host cities Paris and Los Angeles

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

Paris will host the 2024 Olympics and Los Angeles will stage the 2028 Games, the International Olympic Committee has confirmed.

Los Angeles had originally bid for 2024, but because of the new date, it had to make changes to its host contract.

The International Olympic Committee is not considering any plan B for the Pyeongchang 2018 winter Olympics despite the escalating crisis with North Korea, IOC President Thomas Bach said on Tuesday.

Olympic athletes and support personnel will live on the Hill during the 2028 Games and train at Drake Stadium, according to the bid book. Paris will also get to host on the centennial anniversary of the 1924 Olympics. Tokyo's budget for 2020 continues to balloon.

In 2014, the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) announced that it would select the USA candidate city to host the 2024 Games from among four finalists - L.A., Boston, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco.

Unlike past elections for Olympic host cities when these final presentations might have made a difference in the IOC vote, neither city had to worry about losing.

Gas prices in MA remain the same this week

Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti said, "Bringing the Olympics back home to LA gives us the chance to imagine what our city will look like a decade from now".

LA lost to Boston in the initial competition to be the US host city before taking over quickly after Boston bowed out.

"These are two great cities from two great countries with a great Olympic history", he said in a statement. It will contribute $1.8 billion for planning and organizing the Games with the potential to exceed $2 billion through existing sponsorship agreements and potential new marketing deals. L.A. loves the Olympics because the Games have lifted up our city twice before.

See you in 11 years. Numerous plans for 2028 are the same as they would have been if they were awarded for 2024. Following an attack in Munich in 1972 in which a Palestinian terrorist group killed 11 Israeli team members and Montreal going deeply into debt to host in 1976, no other cities bid to host those Games.

In January 2015, the USOC initially selected Boston as the U.S.'s candidate.
