The cities of Paris and Los Angeles (LA) were vying to host the 2024 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. The International Olympic Committee decided to award 2024 to Paris and 2028 to Los Angeles.

Fun Facts:

The last time Paris hosted the Olympic games was 100 years ago, in 1924!

Paris and LA will both use facilities that are already existing. Of course they will add to them and make some changes, but they will not have to make everything completely from scratch and then let it go to waste. Re-using is awesome!

Paris was so keen to host the Summer Olympics in 2024 that athletes showcased the city by performing fantastic stunts in and around major structural and natural wonders there on June 23 and 24 this year. This included a diver jumping off a bridge into the river Seine, athletes sprinting on floating barges on the river, and trampoline artists performing inside the Petit Palais (an art museum) among other terrific stunts as the city pretended to be a gigantic Olympic Park!
