Los Angeles had constructed the very first Olympic Village for the Games. The Olympic Village consisted of
321 acres in Baldwin Hills and offered 550 two-bedroom portable bungalows for the male athletes, a hospital,
post office, library, and a large number of eating establishments to feed the athletes. The female athletes
were housed in the Chapman Park Hotel downtown, which offered more luxuries than the bungalows.
The 1932 Olympic Games also debuted the first photo-finish cameras as well as the victory platform.
Approximately 1,300 athletes participated, representing 37 countries.
