1984 Los Angeles Summer

Welcome Day Sport Resuts Français

  For the second time in their history, the Olympic Games have been entrusted to the organization of the city of Los Angeles. These Games are notably marked by the remarkable arrival of Chinese athletes. But what marked these Games was the financial organisation, because for the first time in the history of the Olympic Games the financial results appear to be non-loss-making.
