About this episode

This is the third episode in our Road to Brisbane series, where we explore the 2032 Brisbane Olympics.

In today's conversation, we're taking a detour out of Australia and exploring the 2028 Los Angeles Olympic Games. 

In this episode Infrastructure partner Alex Guy speaks to Counsel Shmel Graham and senior associate Tristan Robinson, who both played a part in the journey to the Los Angeles Games.

Tristan was involved in the successful bid by the City of Los Angeles to host the 2028 games; and Shmel was part of the Mayor's office during the creation of the Twenty-eight by 28 initiative.

The LA Games are unique, because without any new permanent constructions build for the games, all the resources are focused on advancing social and public policy goals around equity, sustainability, the equitable distribution of resources in cities, and a shared community experience around sport.

Similarly, the Brisbane Games are also set to utilize existing infrastructure whilst also delivering lasting social benefits to the community.
