The 2028 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXXIV Olympiad, is a forthcoming international multi-sport event. Bidding for the host city was originally scheduled to begin in 2019, with the winning bid scheduled to be announced in 2021. However, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is considering a joint awarding plan for both the 2024 and the 2028 games. Under this proposal, the losing finalist for the 2024 games (either Los Angeles or Paris) will then be awarded the 2028 games at the 130th IOC Session in Lima, Peru, on 13 September 2017. The IOC met in Lausanne, Switzerland to discuss this option on 9 June 2017. The International Olympic Committee has formally proposed electing the 2024 and 2028 Olympic host cities at the same time this year. The proposal was approved by an Extraordinary IOC Session on 11 July 2017 in Lausanne. On 31 July 2017, the IOC made a deal with Los Angeles to host the 2028 Summer Olympics, which makes Paris, the official host of the 2024 Summer Olympics.
Format of Competition
The competition format was the same as at the previous Summer Olympics. All participating gymnasts, including those who were not part of a team, participated in a qualification round. Some countries had qualified up to two extra gymnasts to compete as individuals in addition to having their team of four gymnasts. The results of this competition determined which teams and individuals participated in the remaining competitions, which included:
The team competition, in which the eight highest scoring teams from qualifications competed. Each team of four gymnasts could only have three gymnasts perform on each apparatus, and all three scores counted toward the team total. The extra individual gymnasts did not participate in the team final or stand with their teams in the medal ceremony.
The all-around competition, in which only the twenty-four highest scoring individuals in the all-around competed. Each country was limited to only two gymnasts in the all-around final.
The event finals, in which the eight highest scoring individuals on each apparatus competed. Each country was limited to two gymnasts in each apparatus final.
