Paris: With Paris set to be awarded the 2024 Olympics, one of the organisers' biggest challenges will be to keep within budget - a challenge that has defeated so many of their predecessors. "This historic double allocation is a "win-win-win" situation for the city of Paris, the city of Los Angeles and the IOC", said the IOC President, Thomas Bach on Wednesday, reports Xinhua news agency.

Los Angeles also submitted their bid for the 2024 Games after Hamburg, Rome, and Budapest chose to withdraw, information from the official website said.
