相隔一世紀 巴黎2024年再辦奧運

 After failing three times in recent bids, Paris officials expressed sheer joy when Los Angeles gave up the 2024 Olympics to the City of Lights. Paris will be hosting the Olympics for the first time in 100 years. Besides 1924, the French capital also hosted the Olympics in 1900. The deal was hailed as a "win-win-win" for Los Angeles, Paris and the International Olympic Committee (IOC). This will make LA a three-time Olympic city. After hosting the 1932 and 1984 Games, LA will host again in 2028.
 The L'Equipe sports newspaper was enthusiastic, celebrating the French capital's victory by running a front page headline claiming "La Joie est Libre!" — a play on words on the expression "La Voie est Libre," which means the way has been cleared.
 Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo wrote on Twitter, "Happy that my friend @ MayorofLA has made an important new step on an agreement that will have three winners: Paris, Los Angeles and the IOC #Paris2024." Under the terms of the deal, the IOC will advance funds to Los Angeles in the extended planning period. This will help increase youth sports programs leading up to the Games. The IOC contribution could exceed USD $2 billion (or NTD 60 billion).

 在洛杉磯主動退讓,把2024 年 奧運主辦權讓給花都巴黎後,巴黎 官員喜悅之情溢於言表,畢竟巴黎 近年申辦奧運已失利3 次。這是巴 黎相隔百年後再迎奧運;除了1924 年,巴黎也曾在1900 年主辦奧運 。這個被譽為洛杉磯、巴黎、奧委 會(IOC)三贏的協議,將讓洛杉 磯繼1932、1984 年之後,在2028 年第3 度主辦奧運。
 法國體育報《隊報》非常興奮,以頭版頭條新聞慶祝巴黎成功出線 ,標題刻意玩了文字遊戲,將「 La Voie est Libre」改成「La Joie est Libre!」,前者意思是道路障礙已清 空。
 巴黎市長伊達歌推文說:「很開 心我的朋友洛杉磯市長在協議上 邁出重要一步,因而出現三個贏家 :巴黎、洛杉磯與奧委會#2024 巴 黎奧運。」根據協議,在延長的籌 備期間,奧委會先預付洛杉磯一筆 資金,而這有助提升奧運舉辦前的 青年體育項目。估計奧委會預付的 金額可能超過20 億美元(約新臺 幣600 億元)。
