This meant that only two cities - Paris and Los Angeles - were possible for both years, and the Olympic Committee was reluctant to lose either city as an option. "Both (United States and French officials) will find it more and more hard to convince cities - whether it's Paris, Los Angeles or other American cities - to really go into this process if one of us gets turned down".

The IOC was due to vote later on Tuesday on whether to ratify its executive board's recommendation to award both the 2024 and 2028 Games at the same time, on September 13.

The IOC Session itself will run from September 13-16 in Lima Peru, but the schedule suggests we should know the 2024 Olympic host by the end of the first day.

"Realistically, Brisbane at this point is significantly inferior to Paris: Paris has got 92 per cent, and Los Angeles has got 100 per cent of the infrastructure, venues and village accommodation in place", Coates told The Australian.

The IPC says the 36-year-old man was a thrower from the United Arab Emirates who was entered in the shot put, discus and javelin throw events. Los Angeles has hinted it would accept the 2028 Olympics.

The IOC report noted that in line with the reforms of Olympic Agenda 2020, both Los Angeles and Paris are planning to use a record number of existing and temporary venues, a first in Olympic history and a move created to cut costs and boost sustainability.

Olympic chiefs will meet in Lausanne on Tuesday to discuss and likely rubber-stamp the process to award the 2024 and 2028 Games simultaneously.

Today, two of the world's greatest cities, with outstanding but different proposals, stand ready to serve and advance the Olympic and Paralympic movements and their values.

The City of Los Angeles will still be at risk for the $6 billion in spending necessary to host the games.

John Coates, President of the Australian Olympic Committee and the IOC vice-president who worked most closely on the plan to implement the joint award, claimed the decision could help Brisbane.

Like Garcetti, Hidalgo spoke of a "historic" decision, and of "three winners, the International Olympic Committee and the two cities".

It also avoids inflicting a third recent defeat on Paris - which lost with bids for the 2008 and 2012 Olympics - and the United States.

Bach has said the idea of a double award was presented to him at a lunch past year by friends whom he declined to identify in a recent interview with French sports daily L'Equipe.

"I'm aware of to live with you a moment in history with this decision, which now allows for dual attribution and research three winners", said Ms. Hidalgo.
