Here is a recent AP Gymnastics story:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The 2028 Los Angeles Olympic Games announced Friday changes to their host city plan that will result in estimated total savings and revenue increases of $156 million.

Swimming will take place in a temporary pool at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, which, with its 38,000 seats, is the largest indoor pool in Olympic history; basketball will be played at the Intuit Dome, which opens in Inglewood this August; and gymnastics will take place at the Crypto.com Arena in downtown Los Angeles. Track and field will continue to take place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

The Los Angeles Olympic Games – the third Games to be held in this city – will be held from July 14 to 30, 2028. More than 10,000 athletes from over 200 countries will compete in 35 sports currently on the program.

Plans for the opening and closing ceremonies remain unchanged, with portions taking place at both the Coliseum and SoFi Stadium. As a result, the traditional schedule for track and field and swimming will be adjusted. Track and field will be moved to the first week of the Games, while swimming will take place in the second week.

The temporary competition and warm-up pools will be set up and covered during the opening ceremony. A temporary grandstand will then be set up while the athletes train in the run-up to the swim start.

“World Aquatics is very confident that any impact will be minimal, particularly when compared to the great opportunity we have been given to showcase our sport,” the governing body said in a statement.

The swimming event was originally scheduled to take place at the baseball stadium on the campus of the University of Southern California, where extensive renovations to the sports facilities are currently underway.

“When it became clear that a temporary pool there was not going to be an option, we started thinking about other locations and had this great idea to see if we could do it at Sofi,” LA28 Chairman Casey Wasserman said in a conference call.

USA Swimming is currently holding its tryouts for the Paris Games at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, home of the NFL Colts. Wasserman isn’t worried about whether the seats at SoFi, home of the NFL Rams and Chargers, will be full.

“I’m sure if we had more seats with a view of the competition pool, we could sell them,” he said. “We’re very confident that this will truly be a swimming competition for the ages.”

The marathon athletics competitions take place on the last weekend and medals are awarded at the closing ceremony.

“We are delighted to support this visionary schedule change for LA28,” said Sebastian Coe, President of World Athletics, in a statement. “This change underlines our commitment to innovation in the sport of athletics and raising the global profile of our athletes.”

The softball and canoe slalom competitions will be held in Oklahoma City, where the medal ceremonies will also be held. Athletes in those sports will have the opportunity to participate in the opening and/or closing ceremonies in Los Angeles, Wasserman said.

LA28 says the largest softball arena in Southern California seats fewer than 2,000 and expects a high attendance, so the game will be played at 13,000-seat Devon Park, home of the annual Women’s College World Series.

There is no canoe slalom facility in the western United States, so Riversport OKC, where the Olympic qualifiers were held this year, will be the host venue in 2028.

By relocating the competitions, the construction of temporary venues will be avoided. In addition, LA28 can follow the sustainability concept of the International Olympic Committee, which promotes the use of existing venues outside the host city.

LA28 says the Sepulveda Basin Recreation Area in the San Fernando Valley will host BMX freestyle and BMX racing, as well as skateboard park and street competitions and archery.

The diving will take place in the same pool that hosted the swimming events of the 1932 Olympic Games in Exposition Park, south of downtown Los Angeles. Long Beach will host the synchronized swimming and para-swimming competitions, as well as marathon swimming and water polo.

The equestrian and para-equestrian competitions will be moved from the Sepulveda Dam Recreation Area to an existing facility in Temecula, 1 1/2 hours from Los Angeles, that is large enough to accommodate all disciplines in one location.

The shooting and parasport shooting competitions will also be moved from the Sepulveda Dam Recreation Area to one of two yet-to-be-determined shooting clubs outside of Los Angeles.

According to LA28, each relocation will provide an economic improvement of at least $10 million by reducing the cost and complexity of temporary stadium construction, roofing and operations.

The Organizing Committee submitted the updated venue assignments to the City of Los Angeles, which must approve competitions that extend beyond the city limits in deviation from the original venue plan.

The current venue plan was developed in 2017 as part of the city’s application process. Since then, several new stadiums and arenas have become available.
