Los Angeles reached an agreement Monday with international Olympic leaders that will open the way for the city to host the 2028 Summer Games, while ceding the 2024 Games to rival Paris.
The deal would make LA a three-time Olympic city, after hosting the 1932 and 1984 Games. The agreement follows a vote earlier this month by the International Olympic Committee to seek an unusual deal to award the 2024 and 2028 Games simultaneously. Paris is the only city left to host the 2024 Games. The United States has not hosted a Summer Olympics since Atlanta in 1996. Paris has not hosted a Summer Olympics since 1924. Los Angeles and Paris will join London as the only three-time hosts of the Summer Games.
