Paris celebrated the awarding of the 2024 Summer Games with a grand ceremony in front of the Eiffel Tower. The 2024 Games will mark the third time Paris has staged the Olympics, coming exactly 100 years after they last hosted the Games. Since then, France had made three unsuccessful bids for the Olympics. In Paris, giant Olympic rings were unveiled in front of the Eiffel Tower just after the announcement was made as a small crowd celebrated in driving rain.The 2028 Olympics will be the first held in the United States since the chaotic 1996 Games in Atlanta. It will also mark the third time that Los Angeles has hosted the Olympics following successful editions in 1932 and 1984. (Video credit: SNTV)
