The International Olympic Committee has awarded Paris the rights to host the 2024 Summer Olympics and Los Angeles will stage the 2028 Games.

The IOC selected both cities at the same time at the session in Lima, Peru today. Ensuring the stability of the Olympic Games for the athletes of the world for the next 11 years is something extraordinary. "I am confident that no matter where the Olympic Games would be held ... baseball/softball would be a great part of the Olympic sports program". That recommendation is expected to be ratified this week in Peru. Recognizing the two strong bids, International Olympic Committee leaders pushed this spring and summer to award Olympics and Paralympics to both cities this year.

"We are very proud of the fact that we are a three-time Olympics host".

The ratification followed the approval of the IOC Evaluation Commission report on the LA 2028 bid that was required after Los Angeles shifted gears from 2024 to instead bid for the 2028 Games, clearing the way for Paris. Last year, when the cities were serious rivals, delegates often had the habit of exchanging subtle jabs during prepared remarks. "The phenomenally talented LA28 team has worked tirelessly for more than three years to deliver on our promise to create a new Games for a new era".

But that looks like a problem for the 2018 Cowboys , not the '17 edition that feels strongly they have a shot at the Super Bowl . Later in the day, it's NFC favorites Seattle and Green Bay at Lambeau Field, and the Giants at Dallas in the prime-time game.

"We are thrilled that the Olympics will be returning to Los Angeles", said Oram.

The last time two Olympic hosts were determined at once was in 1921, when the 1924 Paris and 1928 Amsterdam Games were awarded, according to

"These are two great cities from two great countries with a great Olympic history", he said in a statement. The unprecedented deal for host the 2028 Olympics and Paris to host the 2024 Games was struck back in July. The California city's selection for 2028 represents the ninth time the Games will be held in the USA, three more than any other country. "And I think we have a chance to do that again".

But strong opposition and declining support sunk that bid, which died when Mayor Marty Walsh said in July 2015 that he would not sign the host city contract required by the IOC. At the time, they committed to working out a deal that culminated with each city getting an Olympics on Wednesday. The City of Angels was then given the opportunity.
