"This is a proud day for Los Angeles and for the Olympic and Paralympic Movements in America.
We’re thrilled with the IOC’s decision today, which is a major step forward in making LA’s Olympic dream a reality.
Today, two of the world’s greatest cities, with outstanding but different proposals, stand ready to serve and advance the Olympic and Paralympic movements and their values. We look forward to working with the IOC and Paris in the weeks ahead to turn this golden opportunity into a golden future together."
