Los Angeles again welcomes you to the Olympics

The 2028 Summer Olympics are now likely to be awarded to Los Angeles, CA, USA. We here at GoobNet look forward to welcoming the world with open arms and introducing you to In-n-Out and bacon wrapped hot dogs.

Assuming your arteries survive that, you will then have the opportunity to witness world class athletic competitions at world class venues, most of which already exist or are going to exist anyway. Let us now take a brief look at these venues, what they are currently used for, and what they will be used for during the Olympics.
