LA84 Statement on Today’s Olympic News for Los Angeles
Today is a great day for the United States, Los Angeles and the youth of our region!
As Southern California takes a major step toward hosting its third Olympic Games, the LA84 Foundation is excited for the prospect of welcoming the world to the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games in 2028. We will use this opportunity to continue leveling the playing field and building a social and human legacy that will empower the next generation.
For the last 32 years, the LA84 Foundation has provided free and low-cost opportunity for youth to experience the transformative power of sport and engage in the Olympic and Paralympic Movements in a thoughtful and meaningful way. Just as the 1984 Summer Games lit the torch for Los Angeles’ unprecedented Olympic legacy, a new Games will engage and positively impact millions for the next 11 years and beyond. #PlayForAll.
