Los Angeles and Paris had both shown interest to host the 2024 edition but the United States city made a decision to wait four more years after it was guaranteed as host. After the wait of nearly 100 years, Paris has clinched the hosting of 2024 Olympics.
The idea of a Tripartite Agreement came to light after a working group of IOC Vice-Presidents studied the possibility of a double allocation of the Olympic Games 2024 and 2028.
In this never-before-seen style of selection, Bach asked the 94 International Olympic Committee members to allow the real contests to play out at the Olympics themselves and transform the vote from a game of sorts into a pure business decision.
It was solved by Paris and Los Angeles, two cities with a storied tradition of Olympic hosting and an apparent understanding of Bach's much-touted reform package, known as Agenda 2020.
After Bach called for a show of hands to approve the dual award, dozens of arms shot skyward from the audience; moments later, Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo stood next to the International Olympic Committee president dabbing tears from her eyes. These events reflected sporting and Olympic values, such as respect and friendship, and also highlighted the attractiveness of France - which plays host to many major sporting events -, as well as French innovation and expertise, and the French language, one of the IOC's two official languages. "A hundred years after 1924 we are bringing the Games back to Paris".
The pre-ordained outcome did little to dampen celebrations inside the Lima Convention Centre, where Paris and Los Angeles officials cheered and congratulated each other.
"These are two great cities from two great countries with a great Olympic history".
It will be the third time that Los Angeles hosts the Olympics, with the first two happening in 1932 and 1984. It seeks to streamline the Games, most notably by eliminating billion-dollar stadiums and infrastructure projects that have been underused, if used at all, once the Olympics leave town. "This IOC Evaluation Commission report underlines what a historic opportunity LA 2028 is for the City of Angels and the Olympic and Paralympic Movements." he added.
The smooth finish to the race also eliminates the risk of the vote being tainted by the sort of scandal that has embroiled the ballot for the 2016 Olympics. "Both cities are very enthusiastic about the Games and are promoting the Olympic spirit in a fantastic way", said Bach.
"Few governments want to risk the billions in cost overruns that have become synonymous with recent Olympics".
He says the commission was created to substantiate the biggest lie ever told by a sitting president and should be dismantled. The amendment also would prevent funds from being spent on any other commissions established to study "voter fraud".
