LA City Council approves going forward with 2028 Olympic Games

LOS ANGELES >> A Los Angeles Olympic bid that has often been described by its organizers and supporters in metaphoric terms is a single vote next month away from crossing the finish line.

The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously Friday morning to authorize Mayor Eric Garcetti to sign a Host City Contract with the International Olympic Committee in which the city agrees to host the 2028 Olympic Games and guarantees it will cover any potential financial shortfall from those games, clearing the last significant domestic obstacle from the city’s path to hosting a third Olympics.
