The Olympic Arena here was lit up to celebrate Los Angeles being selected to host the 2028 Olympics.
"I would like to thank the IOC President Thomas Bach and the IOC members for placing their continued trust in rugby, and our national member unions, players and passionate fans for making sevens the best it can possibly be".
The Los Angeles Council voted unanimously on August 11 to approve the contracts signed by the city government and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2028.
Ban Ki-moon, the newly elected chief of the ethics body at the International Olympic Committee, said Sunday he feels a heavy responsibility taking the job, but will try to improve the transparency of the organization. Carraro singled out the sport and noted a decision about weightlifting's inclusion in Paris 2024 could take place in December 2017. This paved the way for Paris as the sole 2024 bidder to win the Games unopposed.
Paris, with a total Games budget of $8.09 billion, had failed with previous attempts to land the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Olympics.
"For the first time in a generation, we are bringing the Games back to the City of Angels".
The Los Angeles planning committee estimates that the games will cost $5.3 billion.

The Boilermakers took advantage of that turnover when Blough connected with Richie Worship for a 1-yard touchdown pass. On the season, Blough is completing over 75-percent of his passes for around 10 yards per attempt.
Both Paris's bid co-chair Tony Estanguet and LA bid chairman Casey Wasserman are to stay on and lead the host cities' preparations, mayors Anne Hidalgo and Garcetti confirmed in a news conference after the announcement.
SNCF has announced it is proud of Paris' successful bid to host the 2024 Olympics, and looks forward to the unique celebration of sport that the Olympics represents.
"It is hard to understand from the National Hockey League side", Bach said on Friday at the IOC Session in Peru, adding that an agreement would have been "very favourable" for the National Hockey League.
It sees the Games return to the USA for the first time since the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and marks the third occasion in which Los Angeles has hosted (1932, 1984).
"I'm quite confident that we will have a very safe, very peaceful and harmonious Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang next year".
Tokyo, the host of the next summer Games in 2020, has also had to fend off allegations of corruption regarding the decision to award it the Games four years ago.
