Los Angeles 2028 bid chairman Casey Wasserman described the final confirmation as "thrilling, emotional, nerve-wracking and exciting". "This historic double allocation is a 'win-win-win" situation for the city of Paris, the city of Los Angeles and the International Olympic Committee, ' said IOC president Thomas Bach.

The International Olympic Committee unanimously selected Los Angeles as the host city for the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games on Wednesday.

"Even though there is heightened tension on the Korean peninsula, I'm sure that this Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games will be a great success, with a great deal of stability", Ban told the Olympic Channel in an interview.

The official website of the Paris 2024 Games has revealed some details about the venues that are slated to be used during the sporting event.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II headphones to feature Google Assistant button
Our tipster was told that the new models would cost the same, and we've seen a deposit receipt confirming that identical pricing. Google is working on introducing Google Assistant to a pair of smart headphones, at least according to a new report .

The decision, taken by the IOC membership at the IOC Session in Lima today, ratifies the earlier recommendation of the IOC Executive Board and is another compelling endorsement of rugby sevens, which made a spectacular debut at Rio 2016.

The Los Angeles planning committee estimates that the games will cost $5.3 billion. IOC President Thomas Bach said the votes for both cities were "unanimous".

"It is hard to imagine something better". "We've also noted as well as a high incidence of ADRVs (Anti-Doping Rule Violation) in worldwide level athletes, there are some countries with a very high level of national level athletes with ADRVs and we want to ensure steps are taken in those countries, and if not a there will be a reduction in their ability to participate in the Games".

Public support for hosting the 2028 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles is overwhelming, even if it means waiting for eleven years, according to a survey conducted in July by Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in Los Angeles, California.

After the announcement, representatives from the two host cities, the IOC and President Bach signed official contracts for the Olympic Games, respectively.
