Sevens will remain an Olympic sport until at least 2028, after the International Olympic Committee confirmed the sporting lineup for the next two games.

Ban Ki-moon, the newly elected chief of the ethics body at the International Olympic Committee, said Sunday he feels a heavy responsibility taking the job, but will try to improve the transparency of the organization. Celebrating the decision in jubilance, Paris and Los Angeles both expressed their excitement in bringing home the Olympic Games.

Los Angeles then dropped its bid for the 2024 Olympics, for which it had been campaigning for over two years, in return for receiving the 2028 edition.

"I think it's a brilliant thing for the sport", he said.

The French capital has set a relatively modest budget of 6.6 billion euros. "We've also noted as well as a high incidence of ADRVs (Anti-Doping Rule Violation) in global level athletes, there are some countries with a very high level of national level athletes with ADRVs and we want to ensure steps are taken in those countries, and if not a there will be a reduction in their ability to participate in the Games".

France's world-class public transportation system and SNCF's expertise as a mobility player were among the decisive factors in the IOC's decision. Los Angeles vowed to deliver an environmentally, financially, and socially sustainable Games that inspire future bidding cities with a lasting, positive impact on the LA community.

"(WADA) will be involved with us to make sure we monitor implementation of any actions the IWF proposes to us". "We are going to get a different level after September 13", said Sykes. Pyeongchang, South Korea, will host the 2018 Winter Olympics and Beijing will host the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Los Angeles has hosted the Games twice before - in 1984 and 1932.
