Paris tells IOC 2024 or nothing
LONDON---The Paris bid team
issued an ultimatum to the IOC
yesterday: It's the 2024 Olym-
pics or nothing.
With only Paris and Los Ange-
les left as 2024 bidders after rivals
dropped out, IOC President Thomas
Bach has raised the prospect of one
city being awarded 2024 and the
other taking 2028 to avoid there
being a loser.
But with less than six months un-
til the vote, the International Olym-
pic Committee is still hesitating over
whether to go through with a sudden
And Bach's vision to lock up
Summer Games hosts for the next
11 years could be derailed by the in-
sistence of both LA and Paris that
they are only focused on 2024.
"We can't accept '28," Paris bid
co-chairman Tony Estanguet said
during a visit to London on Tuesday.
"It's not possible."
Estanguet, a three-time Olympic
champion canoeist who became a
member of the International Olym-
pic Committee, is trying to end Par-
is' run of three losing bids.
"We're OK if the IOC wants to give
two games at the same session in
Lima," Estanguet said of the IOC
Session in Peru. "But on our side,
our project is only possible for '24.
We also believe this is the time to
come back to Paris, or to Europe, in
'24. This is the fourth bid, we learnt
a lot. It's now or never.
"Either the IOC family wants to
choose Paris for '24 or we will not
come back for '28. We are not against
the process, we welcome the process
and understand the process, but our
project is only possible for '24."
LA, which is looking to host the
Olympics for a third time, adopted
more cautious language.
With the IOC yet to confirm the
2028 Games will also be awarded
this year, the Americans are only
publicly discussing their 2024
"Los Angeles is the right city at
this critical time for the Olympic
Movement and is only bidding for
2024," the LA bid team said in a
"With all permanent venues al-
ready built and 88 percent public
support, only LA 2024 offers the
lowest-risk and truly sustainable
solution for the future of the Olym-
pic Movement in 2024 and beyond."
The IOC executive board has asked
its four vice presidents to "explore
changes" in Olympic bidding and
report back in July. The four-man
working group will make proposals
to the board and full membership.
They meet from July 9-12 in
Lausanne, Switzerland, where Los
Angeles and Paris will make formal
presentations of their 2024 hosting
