LA 2024: Los Angeles’ vision for the 2024 Olympics

It will be lights, camera, action with the Los Angeles 2024 Olympic bid in the spotlight when the International Olympic Committee visits Tinseltown this week as the race to host the Summer Games heats up.

The IOC’s Evaluation Commission will hear a well-polished sales pitch during a three-day visit that will provide a firsthand glimpse at the LA 2024 vision.

LA 2024 officials will aim to impress but at the same time emphasize that this is no Olympic blockbuster, like those that have been savaged by critics as white elephants for their cost.

In fact, the bid is more frugal than flashy, with officials touting a proposal that will lean heavily on existing sporting venues such as the Rose Bowl, the Forum and Memorial Coliseum. The Coliseum was the centerpiece of the 1932 Olympics and was used again for the 1984 Summer Games.

The L.A. plan calls for no new venue construction and athletes to be housed in renovated student residences on the UCLA campus not far from Beverly Hills. (Reuters)
