Paris and LA were the finalists for the 2024 Summer Olympics.  LA voluntarily gave up their spot in order to be awarded the 2028 Summer Olympics.  It is the first time the IOC has awarded two Olympic events in the same year, but seems like the best alternative then going through the process again only to award them to LA (or Paris) anyway.  Tokyo is hosting in 2020.  This will be the first time the Summer Games will be in the US since Atlanta in 1996 and the first time any Olympics will be in the US since the Salt Lake City winter games in 2002.
