LIMA, Peru (AP) — Paris will host the 2024 Summer Olympics and Los Angeles will stage the 2028 Games — a pre-determined conclusion that the International Olympic Committee has officially ratified in a history-making vote.

Los Angeles moved to 2028, and will halt a stretch of 32 years without a Summer Games in the United States.
