Paris and Los Angeles to host 2024 and 2028 Olympics

Paris and Los Angeles assured of hosting the Games in 2024 or 2028

"Both (United States and French officials) will find it more and more hard to convince cities - whether it's Paris, Los Angeles or other American cities - to really go into this process if one of us gets turned down".

Paris will have the Games, Los Angeles also: the two cities are provided to organize the olympics in 2024 or 2028, and must now agree on the order of assignment, after the decision Tuesday by the global olympic committee (IOC).

The Peruvian capital Lima hosts the 130th IOC Congress on September 13 where the vote to decide the 2024 and likely 2028 hosts will be made. Paris appears to have the edge over Los Angeles.

The IPC says the 36-year-old man was a thrower from the United Arab Emirates who was entered in the shot put, discus and javelin throw events. This follows years of overspending by Olympic hosts and a series of political defeats that have sunk the campaigns of potential candidates.

Bach said at a joint news conference: "We will have dinner tonight and maybe we will talk over dinner", and added on a more serious note: "In August we could be there if all goes well".

A committee session voted that it would seek a "tri-partite agreement" for one host in 2024 and the other in 2028.

But officials still have to figure out when exactly each city will host.

"With Los Angeles and Paris, there are two fantastic cities from countries with a profound Olympic history", Bach said.

"I'm sitting up here with two mayors of two cities which will host, after Tokyo [in 2020], the next two Olympics".

It was not Dr. Bach's fault that the Sochi Winter Games were tarnished by blatant Russian cheating or that the Rio Olympics had so many problems - only last week the International Olympic Committee turned down a request from the organisers to help bale them out because they still owed an estimated $28 million to contractors and suppliers.

After the cost to host the 2004 Athens Summer Olympics doubled to over $11 billion, Greece suffered a public debt crisis and is still an economic basket-case 13 years later.

Bach named the presentations "mind-blowing" and "Olympism at its best". The three social networking giants are said to have each offered the tournament's U.S. rights holder Fox Sports "tens of millions of dollars" to stream games in their domestic market as they ramp up their interest in premium sports content.

L.A.'s previous hosting duties, in 1932 and 1984, were also "games-changers" for the Olympics, Garcetti said.
