L.A. to Host the 2028 Summer Olympics

[ Originally published on this site as post ]

Los Angeles is set to host the 2028 Summer Olympics after reaching an agreement with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the office of L.A City Council President Herb Wesson confirmed Monday. The deal will be formally announced at a Monday evening news conference and reviewed by the Olympic council later this week. The decision was widely anticipated, given that L.A. and Paris were the only remaining bidders for the 2024 and 2028 Olympic spots. With L.A.’s position confirmed, Monday’s announcement all but secures Paris’s status as the host of the 2024 Summer Olympics.

“This is an historic day for Los Angeles, for the United States, and for the Olympic and Paralympic movements around the world,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said
