This week, the organizing committee for the LA28 Olympic and Paralympic Games met with members of the International Olympic Committee and International Paralympic Committee to discuss updates and progress.
“LA is an amazing place, with amazing people,” said LA28 Coordination Commission Chair Nicole Hoevertsz. “This is evident in the quality and quantity of world-class sports facilities available for the Games including modern, cutting-edge stadiums and iconic legacy venues used during the 1932 and 1984 Olympic Games. This history has instilled the Games within the DNA of Los Angeles and people here are very excited for 2028. These Games are on track to inspire the next generation and make a lasting impact.”
During the visit, the Organizing Committee updated LA28 Coordination Commission members on pivotal milestones and progress including the advancement of its commercial program, community programs and athlete opportunities. Coordination Commission members also enjoyed tours of several venues throughout Southern California that will be used during the LA28 Games, including UCLA that will host the LA28 Athletes’ Village.
“LA28 is well positioned to deliver an amazing Olympic and Paralympic Games in Los Angeles,” said LA28 Chair Casey Wasserman. “With six years to go, we’ve entered the traditional planning phase of the Games and are preparing for an incredible event, prioritizing athlete and fan experience and fiscal responsibility. I am grateful to LA28 Coordination Commission Chair Nicole Hoevertsz for her leadership as we work together to host a Games the world will love.”
