IOC Will Select, Announce 2024 Olympic Host On September 13

IOC Will Select, Announce 2024 Olympic Host On September 13

The IOC membership earlier approved a decision to recognise the "exceptional circumstances" and "unique opportunities" presented by the candidatures of Los Angeles and Paris for the Olympic Games 2024. Both want it in 2024, one will have to accept 2028.

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). Then, the members will likely endorse Bach's proposal to award two Summer Games at once when they next meet on September 13 in Lima, Peru. Paris and Los Angeles are being seen as cities that can reform the Olympics, by using existing and temporary facilities which could reduce prohibitive costs in hosting the Games.

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.

In addition, a new evaluation committee will be formed to look into the cities' ability to host 2028 Games, mainly looking at risks compared to 2024.




"This will create a win-win-win situation for L.A., Paris and the entire Olympic movement", the IOC president said, standing beside Garcetti.

John Coates, President of the Australian Olympic Committee and the IOC vice-president who worked most closely on the plan to implement the joint award, claimed the decision could help Brisbane. "We welcome the executive board's decision to recognize two excellent bids from two of the world's greatest cities", said LA Mayor Garcetti prior to the vote, in a statement.

Even if the International Olympic Committee has previously indicated that no concessions will be made for whichever city goes second, never mind that, in 11 years time, he will have moved on - possibly to the White House - Garcetti rightly feels as though he has already won. "All summer and winter games that we've studied have shown cost overruns", wrote Bent Flyvbjerg, the lead researcher.

Olympism is the best, isn't it?

"You are right to remember that we lost three times". "I would not be here if they were not ready". "He contented himself with a tweet at the end of the presentations, where there is no allusion to 2024: "[We] are working hard to get the Olympic games for the United States [L. A.].
