2024 and 2028 Olympics to be officially awarded to Paris and LA

Tony Estanguet left and Anne Hidalgo spoke on arrival in Lima

Attending the red carpet event at Lima's Gran Teatro Nacional del PerĂº were 85 IOC members along with delegations from the Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games bids and other dignitaries who heard speeches and were entertained with cultural performances. The IOC in July made a decision to award the next two editions to the two cities left in the 2024 race, with Paris getting the 2024 edition and LA the Games four years later.

"Most of the citizens of Los Angeles are excited about the Games and excited to bring the Games back to Los Angeles".

"We think the result is extraordinary", Wasserman told AFP.

Trump meeting with Malaysian prime minister under scrutiny
It reads, "Today, President Trump will welcome Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak of Malaysia to the White House". Trump is also likely to reiterate thanks for Malaysia's efforts to assist the USS John S.

President Thomas Bach and Peruvian counterpart Pedro Pablo Kuczynski each claimed sport can still be a force for good in troubled times during the Opening Ceremony of the 131st IOC Session here.

Wednesday's vote marks the conclusion of a mostly good-natured bidding campaign notable for the number of cities which withdrew from the race citing waning public support and concerns over budget. LA, which initially wanted the 2024 Games, unexpectedly got the 2028 Olympics as the International Olympic Committee changed the bidding process in mid-race this year after several cities pulled out, scared off by the size and cost of the world's biggest multi-sports event.

International Olympic Committee chief Bach first signalled publicly that the double-award of an Olympics could be on the agenda in December a year ago, lamenting that the bidding process produced "too many losers".

Trump Takes Travel Order back to SCOTUS
The debates here, now before the Supreme Court, have centered around what constitutes such a "bona fide relationship". Lower courts had blocked the ban, saying Trump overstepped his authority and unconstitutionally targeted Muslims.

Lee Hee-Beom, the president of the 2018 Winter Games organising committee, later said he was confident of delivering "perfect security" for the Games, admitting no contingency plans had been drawn up. The announcement follows the IOC's landmark July decision to award both Summer Olympics simultaneously. However, former Olympic hosts Atlanta and Salk Lake City were not included in the celebration. "This contact continues", Bach said.

"We feel we have done what we can do".
