It's an important move for Los Angeles to lock the award of being host of the 2028 Summer Games, which is scheduled to be announced with 2024 Olympics host city, Paris, together by International Olympic Committee on September 13 in Peru.

"We're grateful to Los Angeles 2028 for inspiring the BEST students at Gates Street Elementary and making the school campus a more attractive place", said Los Angeles' BEST President and chief executive Eric Gurna.

The "tripartite agreement" between the IOC, Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028 was ratified in the Peruvian capital Lima on Wednesday.

SNCF, a global leader in passenger and freight transport services, is one of the official partners of of the Olympic and Paralympic games in Paris in 2024 and announced the successful bid for the games in almost 3,000 train stations across France. Carraro singled out the sport and noted a decision about weightlifting's inclusion in Paris 2024 could take place in December 2017.

"We have an enormous amount of work to do to be able to organize and fully win, altogether, these 2024 Games", Macron added.

Ban, who served as the United Nations secretary-general from January 2007 to December 2016, was officially elected at the IOC Session in Lima, Peru, on Thursday (local time) to lead the Ethics Commission, an independent body that establishes the framework of ethical principles and looks into the cases that violate the IOC Code of Ethics.

Paris, with a Games budget of 6.8 billion euros ($8.09 billion), had failed with previous attempts to land the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Olympics. IOC President Thomas Bach said the votes for both cities were "unanimous".

"The annual world series is very attractive, the Commonwealth games and then Olympics are a massive drawcard for men and women wanting to compete".

According to a previous Tripartite Agreement reached by the two cities and the International Olympic Committee in July, Paris would be candidate for hosting the 2024 Olympics Games and Los Angeles for hosting the 2028 edition.

With the two teams - the final contestants of an initial six-strong field - having already agreed to split the 2024 and 2028 Games, there was none of the usual pre-announcement nerves and tension.

Tokyo, the host of the next summer Games in 2020, has also had to fend off allegations of corruption regarding the decision to award it the Games four years ago.
