Los Angeles will be hosting the 2028 Olympics and Paris will hold the 2024 Olympics according to IOC. The IOC said, “It will give the Los Angeles organizing committee $1.8 billion as a part of the agreement.” The reason they are doing this is because “it aims to increase participation and access to youth sports programs in the city of Los Angeles in the years leading up to the games, “according to an IOC statement. To add, Paris and Los Angeles were the only two cities left for 2024 Olympics after rivaling cities pulled their bids worrying about costs. According to officials from Paris and Los Angeles, they stress their cities already had more than 90% of the facilities they need to host. This is also the first time the U.S had held a summer Olympic since the 1996 Atlanta. 

The problem about hosting Olympic Games is it guarantees a massive debt and costs overruns. According to researchers at Oxford’s Said Business School, the estimated cost overrun for the 2016 Summer Olympics, in Rio de Janeiro was $1.6 billion. Los Angeles had also held Olympics in 1932 and 1984. According to Mayor, Eric Garcetti he states, “The deal was too good pass up,” which means he did want to host the games in Los Angeles because the deal was great. Garcetti states, “it’s a major step toward bringing the Games back to our city for the first generation.” This is the first time that two games were decided at once. 

In conclusion, Los Angeles will be holding the 2028 Olympics. Also, France will the 2024 Olympics previous to the 2028 Olympics. According to the planning committee the games will cost $5.8 billion.
