Los Angeles City Council OKs plan for 2028 Olympic Games

Los Angeles City Council OKs plan for 2028 Olympic Games

Los Angeles only recently agreed to host the 2028 Olympic and Paralympics in a race that heated up against Paris for 2024 but wound up in a double awarding of two editions.

The vote took place less than two weeks after the city announced an agreement with worldwide Olympic leaders ceding the 2024 Games to rival Paris, while opening the way for Los Angeles to host the 2028 Games.

LA City Council President Herb Wesson 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".

"Who knows what the future holds but I have faith in you and this body that if anything comes up we will make the necessary adjustments to make this the most successful Games in the history of the Olympics".

More than 50 Olympic and Paralympic athletes and City leaders joined LA 2028 in Council Chambers to express their support for bringing the Games back to LA.

"The Los Angeles Olympics was the greatest time of my life", Lewis said.

He said, "I would love to bring my son back, and my grandchildren, to be able to say hey, your grandad ran in this place years ago". My father wasn't the type to cry. In response to the criticism, Councilman Joe Buscaino said, "I'm exhausted of these people coming to us and questioning our decision making".

"Today's vote by the City Council is a resounding show of confidence in our fiscally responsible plan for 2028, and more evidence of Angelenos' passion to return the Games to LA".

Isco has signed his contract renewal with Real Madrid , a reliable club source has confirmed to Diario AS. A formal announcement is expected next week after the Spanish Super Cup.

The council vote comes less than two weeks after LA 2028 and the International Olympic Committee reached a record-setting agreement for the city to host the 2028 Games.

The teaser video "Building our Legacy" narrated by Lewis is a series that captures memories from athletes and volunteers from the Los Angeles 1984 Olympic Games and builds excitement for the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

But Los Angeles' campaign was given a boost when Olympic leaders agreed to hand over a bigger portion of their broadcast and sponsorship revenue for allowing Paris to go first.

The IOC will award Paris the 2024 Games that same day.

All 95 International Olympic Committee members have assured Los Angeles officials that the organization will unanimously approve Los Angeles as the 2028 host and award Paris the 2024 Games in a September 13 vote in Lima, Peru, Garcetti and LA 2028 chairman Casey Wassserman said.

"This new MOU ensures that our City priorities remain front-and-center in LA 2028's preparations for the Games".

Los Angeles sought concessions for waiting four years which includes the IOC advancing $180 million to the local organizing committee due to the longer planning period and funding towards developing youth sports.
