Tony Estanguet, the co-chairman of Paris 2024, has claimed he is taking nothing for granted with 100 days left until the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is due to award the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games to either Los Angeles or Paris.

Tony Estanguet, the co-chairman of Paris 2024, has claimed he is taking nothing for granted with 100 days left until the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is due to award the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games to either Los Angeles or Paris.

It is widely expected that the IOC will officially decide at a meeting of its ruling Executive Board in Lausanne on Friday (June 9) to award both 2024 and 2028 together.

It is assumed that Paris will be awarded the 2024 edition and Los Angeles the event four years later at the IOC Session in Lima on September 13.

 

 


Estanguet is refusing to speculate about the outcome.

He once again, however, made it clear that the French capital is interested only in 2024, although they support the idea of simultaneously awarding both events together.

If the Olympics come to Los Angeles in 2028, it will have been 32 years since the Summer Games were last on American soil (1996 Atlanta) and 44 since they were held in Los Angeles.

A 2024 Paris Olympics would come on the 100th anniversary of the 1924 Paris Games.

Both cities have already hosted the Olympics twice.
