    LA is nominated the official host for the 2028 Olympics and Paralympics.

    Los Angeles awarded 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games

    Summer Games to return to the United States for first time in 32 years

    LIMA, Peru – The International Olympic Committee has selected Los Angeles as the Host City of the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games, returning the Summer Games to the United States for the first time since Atlanta 1996. The City of Angels will be hosting the Olympics for the third time (1932, 1984, 2028) and the Paralympics for the first time.

    At the IOC Session in Lima, IOC members voted to ratify a tripartite agreement between the IOC and the cities of LA and Paris, with the 2024 Games going to Paris and 2028 Games to LA. The agreement follows the IOC members’ unanimous approval at the July 2017 Extraordinary IOC Session for the simultaneous election of the host cities of the 2024 and 2028 Games.  

    In its final presentation to the IOC today, LA 2028 highlighted the City of Angels’ plan to create a New Games for a New Era by harnessing LA’s unparalleled creative, storytelling assets to deliver the world’s greatest sporting event in a low-risk, fiscally responsible and sustainable way.

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said: “This is a momentous day for the people of Los Angeles and the United States. For the first time in a generation, we are bringing the Games back to the City of Angels. LA loves the OIympics because the Games have lifted up our city twice before. But to us the Games have always represented an even brighter future and the chance to harness the power of sport and the Olympic Movement again to inspire the next generation – for the next 11 years and beyond.”

    LA 2028 Chairman Casey Wasserman said: “This 11-year agreement with the IOC is the ultimate validation of LA 2028’s New Games for a New Era, and Los Angeles’ vision for the future. As a team and as a city, we could not be more excited to be entering into this long-term partnership with the Olympic and Paralympic movements, and with one of the great cities of the world, Paris. This will be an extraordinary collaboration that secures the future of the Movement for generations. Now LA 2028 has a golden opportunity, with four more years to prepare and a $2 billion contribution from the IOC, to redefine how hosting the Games can benefit host communities.”

    United States Olympic Committee Chairman and U.S. IOC Member Larry Probst said: “Today is one of the most significant days in the history of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic movements – and it’s one we’ve been waiting to celebrate for many years. Los Angeles’ Games plan is second to none and will have a far-reaching impact domestically and abroad. This visionary dual award will no doubt provide an era of unprecedented strength and stability for the global Olympic and Paralympic movements, and the LA Games will absolutely fulfill their promise of being a New Games for a New Era.”

    USOC CEO Scott Blackmun said: “A Games on home soil is an extremely special opportunity that will allow us to grow and serve the Olympic and Paralympic movements for decades to come. We couldn’t have found a better partner than Los Angeles to give a new generation of American athletes and fans the experience of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. I look forward to seeing the innovation, imagination and sustainability Los Angeles will use over the next 11 years to create and deliver something truly magical.”

    Los Angeles and the USOC jointly launched the LA bid on Sept. 1, 2015, and shifted the candidature from 2024 to 2028 on July 31, 2017, after coming to terms with the IOC. Under the revised Host City Contract, LA 2028 is able to invest up to $160 million to increase youth sports access and participation in Los Angeles in the years leading up to the Games. The new Host City Contract will also provide LA 2028 with an 80 percent share of any Games surplus and an IOC contribution of $2 billion. In August, the LA City Council and USOC board approved the updated agreement.

    The bid has been overwhelmingly supported in the city of Los Angeles, the state of California and throughout the entire United States.

    U.S. IOC Executive Board Member and LA 2028 Senior Advisor for Legacy Anita DeFrantz said: “I couldn’t be more proud that my beloved city will host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2028. The Olympic Games are intimately woven into the history of this ever-evolving city – it is part of what defines us. Just as we reimagine ourselves and our stories daily, we are ready to redefine the Games once again, not only for our own benefit, but for the prosperity of this critically important movement. These Games will build on the legacy that began in 1932 and was cemented in 1984, and will touch the lives of Angelenos and Americans for decades to come.”

    U.S. IOC Executive Board Member and LA 2028 Chief Strategy Officer Angela Ruggiero said: “Los Angeles has always been a committed partner to the Olympic and Paralympic movements. This city – which played a critical role in my Olympic journey – is home to some of the world’s most creative, athletic and innovative people. Our diversity is our strength, and LA is uniquely and perfectly suited to welcome the world with open arms once again. It is an amazing and defining honor for a city to host the Games, and Los Angeles stands ready to surpass all expectations in 2028.”

    U.S. Men Take Home Gold at the 2017 IWBF America's Qualifier

    Hard working Boie joins National Team

    08/30/2017, 1:00pm CDT
    By Taylor Bond, NWBA

    John Boie is known as one of the hardest working players on any team he plays for. His personal motto is, “Hard work overcomes any amount of talent.” He worked his way from playing on two U-19 USA National Teams to winning not one but three National Championships with the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater to now representing Team USA in America’s Qualifier. Before his seemingly glory days, he is another graduate of the NWBA Junior Division.

    Boie played for both the Mad City Badgers and the Wheelin Wizards in his home state of Wisconsin. His greatest memories come from remaining in his homeland to play and grow his abilities. He recalls winning the 2012 National Championship by 41 points as his all time favorite basketball memory to date. Boie also claims Michael Jordan has given him a lot of inspiration to become the player he is manifesting into and watching Jordan pushed him to constantly perfect his skills and abilities.

    In 2015, he competed at the Kitakyushu Champions Cup tournament in Japan. However, coming a little short for the U.S. Men’s National Team in 2015, he worked harder than ever to come back with sights on Tokyo 2020. After a three-day selection camp earlier in the year he got the news he had been officially selected to the U.S. Men’s National Team.

    “When they finally read my name for my first time making the team, it was pretty surreal. Going into the other room with the guys who made the team was really special,” said Boie.

    He notes he’s grown up playing with a number of the men on the national team and to be a part of something this special with each of them is that much more meaningful. He knows there is still a long road ahead of him before securing a spot for 2020 but he is confident in his play and believes he will be able to secure that one slot.

     

    CALI, COLOMBIA – For the second time in the 2017 IWBF America’s Qualifier, the U.S. Women’s National Team suffered its second loss to Canada in the gold-medal game, 82-56. Canada came out strong in the first with a strong defensive line and built a 15-3 lead after 10 minutes. 

    The Canadians continued its strong presence having an 11-point run, and forcing 23 Team USA turnovers that were converted into 31 points for Canada. 2016 Paralympian Cindy Oullett led Canada to the gold medal with 35 points. Three other Canadians found double digits on the night: Arinn Young (15 points); Kathleen Dandeneau (11 points); and Rosalie Lalonde (11 points).

    The United States shot 51 percent from the floor and was 10 of 13 from the foul line. The U.S. Women also out rebounded Canada, 27-23.

    2016 Paralympic gold medalist Abby Dunkin of New Braunfels, Texas, led Team USA in scoring with 19 points, and was joined by 2017 National Team rookie Lindsey Zurbrugg of Portland, Oregon, with 18 points.

    The United States finished with an overall record of 3-2, and accomplished the goal of qualifying for the 2018 IWBF World Championships in Hamburg, Germany, in August.

    NWBA Hall of Famer Trooper Johnson of San Lorenzo, California, serves as the U.S. Women’s National Team Head Coach. He is assisted by Amy Spangler of Madison, Wisconsin, and Adam Kramer of Northport, Alabama. Also joining the team is athletic trainer Karla Franconi of Lexington, Kentucky, and Team Leader Kearstin Gehlhausen of Denver, Colorado.

    This was the first step for the U.S. Women’s Team as they are focused on advancing through the quadrennial to defend its Rio Paralympic gold medal in the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. Last September, Team USA also managed to break two of their own records (most points in a game and largest margin of victory) en-route to the gold medal going 7-0 in the process.

    CALI, COLOMBIA – It was positioning day for the United States at the 2017 IWBF America’s Qualifier and a key game for the U.S. Women’s National Team as they needed a victory to ensure a top-four placement. With a 45-23 victory over Colombia, the U.S. Women have qualified for the 2018 IWBF World Championships in Hamburg, Germany, in August. 

    The U.S. Women have one more game left at the IWBF America’s Qualifier, against rival Canada that is scheduled for Tuesday, August 29 at 7 p.m. central time.

    Sunday’s competition against host country Colombia was a defensive battle. Two-time U.S. Paralympian and gold medalist Desi Miller of Monroe, Washington, paced the squad today with 14 points. 2017 U.S. National Team rookies Lindsey Zurbrugg of Portland, Oregon, and Emily Oberst of Brookfield, Wisconsin, scored 8 and 7 points, respectively, rounding out the top three shooters on the day.

    “The team played well today and it was a good finish to the first round of the tournament,” said U.S. Women’s Head Coach Trooper Johnson of San Lorenzo, California. “It is always interesting when you play a team in their home country. Colombia came out with passion and played a very inspired game. Even as we started building a lead, the Colombian team continued to pressure us on both ends of the court. We ran several lineup combinations and tried working on specific things that will hopefully help us in our next game against Canada. We have one more day to prepare before our final game here in Colombia.”

    The America’s Qualifier is a classification event that determines who will compete in the 2018 IWBF World Championship in Hamburg, Germany in August. The U.S. Women’s team will be competing against Argentina, Canada, Colombia and Brazil for a spot in Germany.
