Paris will host the olympics in 2024

Just as an update on an issue I'm still rather interested in, it now looks like the host city for the 2024 and 2028 olympics are a done deal. Los Angeles has agreed to stand by and let Paris host the 2024 games, while it will host the 2028 games. This is the first time two hosts have been announced at once. If you ask me, this is rather cool: an olympics in paris in 2024 is what I wanted to see. It feels only fair, after the french faced so much disappointment, especially in 2005. Plus we get an American olympics to look forward to too, which is sure to be spectacular, assuming that current joke of a nation has it's affairs in order by then. For now, though, I'm looking forward to seeing what the french do, how they go about preparing the city of love and light for the world's greatest fiesta, and especially to watching their opening ceremony.

Mind you, this sets a precedent for announcing two host cities at once, which might have implications for the future. It might really change how olympic host cities are awarded. Several might now be found at once. That could effect a future olympics in the UK. If you ask me, it's already time to start thinking about that. I would still love to see an olympic games in Manchester in 2032, and now might be the time to get the campaign for that going.
