The 2024 Summer Olympics was awarded to Paris, while the 2028 Games was clinched by Los Angeles. Paris will host the Games after a hundred years, the last being held in 1924. Paris has had the distinction of hosting the Olympics twice earlier. Los Angeles will also be hosting it's third Olympics after being host in 1932 and 1984.
