Statement of Significance (as of designation - July 27, 1984):
One of the premier outdoor sports facilities in the world, this giant elliptical, reinforced concrete, cast-in-place structure was constructed in 1921-23 and later enlarged. It has served as the focal site for the 1932 and 1984 Olympic Games. The Xth Olympiad witnessed a number of innovations, including the Olympic Village, which was introduced at Los Angeles, and use of the victory podium.
