Los Angeles will be hosting the summer Olympics in 2028.

The International Olympic Committee awarded the 2028 games to Los Angeles on Wednesday after a vote.

The deal brings the Olympics back to Los Angeles for the third time. The city hosted the Games in 1984 and 1932.

The official Twitter account of LA 2028 posted a photo of former Olympians Michael Johnson and Janet Evans to celebrate the news.

In July, there were reports that Paris and Los Angeles were competing to hold the Olympics for 2024.

"I think we’re getting significant both guaranteed and revenue opportunities that will benefit our delivery of the Games in an economic way,” LA 2028 chairman Casey Wasserman told USA TODAY last month.

Meanwhile, Paris will host the 2024 Summer Olympics.
