  1. Hilmer Lodge Stadium (Mt. Sac) recently finished the renovations on their stadium, the university claims the permanent capacity is 11,500 and that it the stadium can be expanded to a larger capacity if needed. The new facility looks really nice, and I believe it is WA certified. Info: https://www.mtsacathleticscomplex.com/main-facilities/stadium-track-field
  2. Our green overload from an egg-shaped planet (@yoshi) has requested logos, and I am not one to disappoint. Here is my Milano-Cortina 2026 entry: https://imgur.com/gallery/wML8c4e The logo consists of a mountain peak, slalom ski gates, and a typeface. The mountain peak (that I have nicknamed “The Pinnacles”) represents the craggy Dolomite mountain peaks that surround Cortina d’Ampezzo. The peak is colored gold to symbolize the glory of victory, and the shape of the peak is reminiscent of the podium. The slalom gates are formed by pillars that resemble the architecture of the famous San Siro Stadium in Milan. The slalom gates are also colored green and red in a reference to Italy’s national colors. The typeface is in a style that feels modern, yet evokes a blast to the past. It brings to mind those classic ski resort style typefaces used in the early days of skiing, that was still in use when Cortina previously hosted. Here is my Brisbane 2032 entry: https://imgur.com/gallery/uhdtAGm The logo consists of one main graphic element and a typeface. This logo represents both the Brisbane of modern times, and the Brisbane of past eras. The graphic element has three main parts: a stylized B, a sun, and the sun’s rays. The stylized B represents the Brisbane River. The B flows like the river and it is placed centrally in the sun, since the Brisbane River is the “life-blood” of Brisbane in many ways. It is colored in that dark green color that many urban waterways have. The Sun represents the well-known Australian heat and beach culture, as well as, the heat of Olympic competition. The yellow color of the sun, and the dark green color of the river, also form the colors used in much of Australia’s national sports attire. The Sun’s Rays are formed by shark fins. These represent the Bull Shark, a fearsome predator of the Brisbane River and surrounding ocean areas. Their placement around the sun also suggests motion, which breathes life into the logo. Finally, the typeface is formed by a modern font, that has been stylized in a manner similar to aboriginal artwork.
  3. I have tired imbedding, using the “insert image from URL” feature, and both Flickr and Imgur. Absolutely nothing works for me. I have no clue what I’m doing wrong. I’m just going to post the links to the images on Imgur in my post, and hopefully you guys can view them that way.

  6. I couldn’t get the photo to post from Imgur, so unless there’s someone I can send the images to, I’ll have to bow out.
  7. @yoshi What is the best way to post the logos, since I can’t figure out how to upload them directly to the forum?
  8. @yoshi I have an entry for Milano-Cortina. I’m still trying to find time/inspiration to put a Brisbane one together.
  9. I joined not too long ago myself, so I don’t have much advice to offer up, but I’ll say hi back
  10. Kind of under selling the World Games there Granted they have a small following, but they’ve been experiencing some major growth over the last 2/3 editions.
  11. I’m sure they have a plan. This isn’t LA’s first time hosting after all.
  12. It’s not been made explicitly clear, but it’s been indicated by LA2028 media releases and statements that this is likely the final logo. I think they can change it if they want, but there’s no reason to if people like it.
  13. Interesting article about merchandising: https://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1098169/la28-launch-new-merchandise-range
  14. Yeah, it’s one of my favorites. I don’t get why people hate so much. It’s a great representation of the Olympic symbols, France, and French art culture.
  15. My guess is the rim, that’s the common practice at multi-sports games nowadays. I’m not the biggest fan of the design either.
  16. I would have been okay with this, but I like what they came up with much better.
  17. I wouldn’t mind a medal that completely disregards the logo, for a more typical LA scene (Skyscrapers Downtown, Griffith Observatory, Santa Monica Pier, etc.)
  18. Yep times 1,000 to that, make that two proud Angelenos. For me, their branding really managed to capture LA well. I really hope to be involved in these Games somehow, rather that be working, volunteering, or reporting I don’t care. I just want to be a part of it.
  19. Besides all of those awesome things, this is great for merchandising as well. People can pick and choose between the logos they like, which may lead to more people buying merchandise, or making more purchases to try and “collect” all the logos. I will say that they already have an A styled in the 84 style for their merchandise. I would really like to see them open this up to public, and let even more Angelenos have a part in what the logo looks like. I do really enjoy the focus placed on athletes for these first few designs though. The Games do face some opposition from the community, so I think engaging in dialogue with the community, “leaving LA better than they found it,” and creating a lasting legacy for the community in terms of transportation/infrastructure and local youth sports will be essential for the success and viability of the Games.
  20. Yeah, someone suggested that they should just change all the characters to the desired style. I suggested maybe leaving the A normal, but they coming up with a fun shape for everyone to create/fill in a different way. I will say that this matches the culture of LA very well. The blocky lettering is typical “brutalist” style you’ll see in street art and other lettering around the city.
