Yesterday, LA 2024, the organization spearheading Los Angeles’s push for the 2024 Olympic games, revealed impressive renderings of the LA Memorial Coliseum and USC’s Dedeaux Field as they would appear if the city wins its bid for the games.

LA faces tough competition for hosting responsibilities—the city is up against Paris, Rome, and Budapest. In June, leaders of the Paris bid unexpectedly arrived in LA and began scoping out the competition. The French capital hasn’t hosted a summer games since 1924; LA has hosted the games twice since then.

Still, LA 2024 has presented a compelling plan for the games that shows how uniquely equipped the city is for hosting such a complex, international event. All of the venues that LA 2024 has proposed for use in the games exist already or will be complete long before 2024. The map below details most of the key sites of LA’s bid.
