Los Angeles to host 2028 Summer Olympics

Los Angeles has reached an agreement with the International Olympic Committee to host the Summer Games in 2028, the Los Angeles Times reports. Los Angeles originally bid to host the 2024 Games, so the agreement announced Monday sets the city back a cycle; Paris will host in 2024 instead.

An American city has not hosted the Summer Games since Atlanta in 1996. L.A. has hosted twice before, in 1932 and 1984. The next Summer Olympics will be held in Tokyo in 2020.
