(SFC) LA 2024 concludes its virtual venue tour series with new renderings of its proposed stand-alone venues such as the Olympic, Paralympic, and Media Villages. LA has the IOC in this week to evaluate their Olympic plan and is bidding against Paris, France.

LA 2024 has harnessed Southern California's wealth of housing, transportation, and top sports infrastructure to minimize operational costs and struggles along with construction risks. This allows LA 2024 to focus on providing the perfect stage for athletes to perform to the best of their abilities without any distractions taking place.

The University of California, Los Angeles' (UCLA's) existing state-of-the-art facilities will house the Olympic and Paralympic Village. UCLA's modern and gorgeous residences are already accustomed to housing over 16,000 residents every year.

As for the Media Village, it will be located on the University of Southern California's (USC's) stunning campus, while the Main Press Center will be at the Annenberg School of Communication.

UCLA and USC are ranked among the top 25 in the United States. Each university attracts the most accomplished athletes and students from around the world with their beautiful campus environments, athletic, dining, and housing facilities.

"I am excited to share renderings of LA 2024's world-class stand-alone competition venues and Villages at USC and UCLA. The LA 2024 Games Plan places sports where they fit best in Southern California, engaging communities across the region, not just in our four sports parks. Our goal is to immerse all Games attendees in the rich culture, iconic sites and breathtaking natural beauty of LA as we invite the world to Follow the Sun," expressed LA 2024 Chairman, Casey Wasserman.

All the stand-alone venues were chosen after an extensive collaboration and consultation took place between LA 2024 and the respective National Governing Bodies, International Federations, and the venue operators and owners. All venues at LA 2024 will also be serviced by shuttle, bus, and rail links.

The stand-alone venues for LA 2024 include the following:

         ·          Olympic and Paralympic Village

         ·          Media Village and Main Press Center

         ·          Pauley Pavilion for Judo, Wrestling, Sitting Volleyball competitions
