New venue locations have been added to L.A.’s 2024 Olympic bid, including the Honda Center in Anaheim, the Riviera Country Club in the Pacific Palisades, Lake Perris, and most notably, Long Beach.

The volleyball competition would be held at the Honda Center, while the golf competition would be held at the country club; and a total of six events will be held in Long Beach, the biggest Olympic presence in the city’s history.

Though the International Olympic Committee won’t select the host city until Sept. 13, 2017,  what will it take for the designated venues to be event-ready?
