WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jimmy Gomez (CA-34) and Congressman Steve Knight (CA-25) introduced a bipartisan resolution in support of bringing the Olympics back to Los Angeles in 2028.

“Los Angeles is the perfect city to host the Games. Its rich cultural diversity and sportsmanship best exemplifies the Olympic spirit,” said Congressman Jimmy Gomez. “Growing up in nearby Riverside, I remember the thrill of the competition and the athletes who inspired us in the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, from Mary Lou Retton to Carl Lewis. I look forward to seeing what this excitement will do for our city, and the region, as we prepare for 2028.”

Congressmen Gomez and Knight will work together to request support from the full House of Representatives for the 2028 Los Angeles bid.

"Not only is hosting the Olympics a great opportunity for the United States to show international unity, but having the games in Los Angeles grants the city and surrounding communities an opportunity to showcase our unique culture and diverse offerings,” said Congressman Steve Knight. “Bringing the Games to the Greater Los Angeles area will bring more commerce to our local businesses and assist in expanding the reach of our local industries. I look forward to working with Rep. Gomez and our House colleagues to support this opportunity for the U.S. and Los Angeles."
