In a break with tradition, the International Olympic Committee announced two of the next host cities for the Olympic Games. Paris will host in 2024 and Los Angeles in 2028.

Paris and LA were the last cities vying for the 2024 games after all rival cities, including Boston, pulled their bids for the games.

IOC President Thomas Bach said the deal was a "win-win-win."
