Among the athletes in attendance was Carl Lewis, who 33 years ago today won his fourth Olympic gold medal and set a new world record in the 4 x100 metres relay at Los Angeles 1984.
"We negotiated the deal of a lifetime to bring the Games back to America, create a new Olympic legacy for the next generation, and deliver access to sports and fitness programmes to every community in Los Angeles", Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said after the meeting.
Herb Wesson, LA City Council President, said, "Today's vote isn't just about 2028; it is about what will happen in between now and then: the progress we will make, the principles that will guide us and most importantly, the young people we will inspire".
Bid leaders had initially sought to win the 2024 Summer Olympics, providing a detailed budget and independent analysis that council members approved earlier this year.

With the Legislature on recess, it is not guaranteed that the state will approve the same amount for 2028 by a deadline of August 18.
The new memorandum provides city representation on the LA 2028 Board of Directors, gives the city consent rights over significant venue changes within Los Angeles and $270 million of the projected $500 million Games budget contingency, an increase from $250 million, according to LA 2028.
"This new MOU ensures that our City priorities remain front-and-center in LA 2028's preparations for the Games".
