"They have been impressed by the quality of the landmarks and the iconic venues that we offer. We want to show the International Olympic Committee that they can rely on the Paris 2024 team to deliver great Games and we know they will feel the passion and enthusiasm of the French public for this bid".

Voting to decide the host city will take place on 13 September in Lima.

With the International Olympic Committee now assessing a proposal to award the next two Olympics - one to each city - Paris officials insist the French capital city is the right choice for 2024. "She was asked a question along those lines and said, 'We can guarantee you that everybody will be able to come in, '" Garcetti said.

"Not only is he doing us a major honor, but this is a flawless opportunity to answer some serious questions, it's a crucial meeting for the future", said Estanguet's fellow bid co-chairman Bernard Lapasset.

"We are still in a process where we assess a potential candidacy for 2024", said Baumann.

"I'm a little unorthodox about this", Garcetti said.

"But I'd love to go to Paris in 2028 and see my friends; I think it would be great Olympics".

"[Paris] is very different [from LA] and quite right that we say it is quite exceptional".

Paris 2024 Co-Chair Bernard Lapasset, added, "Today the IOC Evaluation Commission arrived in Paris for their visit and we couldn't be more excited to welcome them". "There is a strong Olympic spirit in both cities". "The legacy of 1984 lives on not only in the venues but also and more importantly in the people who were inspired by those Games".

EUROPEAN ATHLETICS President Svein Arne Hansen has endorsed the Paris 2024 bid for the Olympic Games.

"This visit has certainly confirmed our opinion that Los Angeles has developed an excellent proposal", said Patrick Baumann, chairman of the evaluation committee. After bidding for the 2024 Olympics, Los Angeles might have to wait. "The 1984 Boys. bring a very powerful combination of intelligence, enthusiasm and energy to this cause".
