November 26th, 2019 | by Susanna Schick

Los Angeles. 2028. The Summer Olympics return for their third trip. The Olympic Committee has fulfilled their promise to only use recycled materials. An easy promise in a city with so much existing Olympic Infrastructure. But will the Olympians be able to breathe?
