The Los Angeles 2024 delegation, led by Mayor Eric Garcetti, and the Paris 2024 delegation, led by the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron, were welcomed by IOC President Thomas Bach on Monday to The Olympic Museum in Lausanne. On the eve of the Candidate City Briefing 2024 and the 130th IOC Session, both delegations enjoyed a specially curated display from The Olympic Museum’s collection on the Olympic history of Los Angeles and Paris. They also held meetings with the IOC Executive Board.
L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, who during the visit signed the IOC’s Golden Book, commented: “At this crazy moment in the world when so much is unsure, let’s bring what we know to be true and what is able to include people back to Los Angeles. The way the Olympic Games unite people, break down barriers, build bridges at a time where there are two many walls in our world. We welcome the IOC EB decision to look at the simultaneous award of two successive Summer Games. This is a win-win-win.”
