The International Olympic Committee is in Paris this week, just days after a tour of Los Angeles and the venues that could be featured in the 2024 Summer Games.

Judging by what was said, it seems they liked what they saw.

"It goes from spectacular venues, to impressive venues, to mind-blowing venues, to incredible venues," said Patrick Baumann, chair of the IOC's evaluation commission.

For more on the IOC's tour of LA, Take Two spoke to Janet Evans, a five-time Olympic medalist and director of athlete relations for LA 2024.
