"The 2028 Olympics have already begun to have a positive impact on children and communities across Los Angeles and we're excited for what comes next".

The delegation of the Paris 2024 returned to Paris on Friday.

"We're grateful to Los Angeles 2028 for inspiring the BEST students at Gates Street Elementary and making the school campus a more lovely place", said Los Angeles' BEST President and chief executive Eric Gurna. She served as Vice President of the Organizing Committee for the Los Angeles 1984 Games, and then President of the LA84 Foundation for 28 years.

French President Emmanuel Macron hailed the decision to award Paris 2024 as a "victory for France", calling for the "whole country" to get behind the Games.

A Florida sign language interpreter's astonishingly wrong Irma warnings has people outraged
County leaders have faced the brunt of the criticism for failing to organise an interpreter despite days of weather warnings. Leaders for the deaf community expressed shock over how Manatee County had handled the situation.

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.

The compromise sees both cities join London as three-time hosts of the summer Games, with Paris getting its wish to go first and celebrate the 100th anniversary of its last Olympics in 1924.

Both campaign teams summarized their bids in presentations at the 131st IOC Session in Lima, Peru, before the IOC voted to formally confirm the announcements.

Paris, with a total Games budget of $8.09 billion, had failed with previous attempts to land the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Olympics.

Liverpool fan tears into Jurgen Klopp
Jurgen Klopp says he's angry with aspects of Liverpool's performance and that their 1-1 draw with Burnley is hard to accept. Instead Liverpool were left to rue the absence of the suspended Sadio Mane and the eighth goal they conceded in eight days.

Ban, who served as the United Nations secretary-general from January 2007 to December 2016, was officially elected at the IOC Session in Lima, Peru, on Thursday (local time) to lead the Ethics Commission, an independent body that establishes the framework of ethical principles and looks into the cases that violate the IOC Code of Ethics.

The LA Games have a budget of $5.3 billion and will essentially follow the plan they had in place for 2024, including housing athletes at the UCLA campus.

Bach added: "It is hard to imagine something better".

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.
