Peter Ueberroth to Get Lifetime Achievement Award at LA Sports Awards

Peter Ueberroth, the architect of the historic and remarkably successful 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, will be honored with the "Lifetime Achievement Award" during the 12th Annual LA Sports Awards on Monday, February 27, 2017, at The Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Ueberroth was president of the Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee, the organization responsible for staging and operating the Games. Under his leadership and management, the first-ever privately financed Olympics resulted in a $238 million surplus. Hailed as a national hero, Ueberroth was named Time magazine's "Man of the Year" in 1984.

"As we look back at the Olympic year of 2016 and forward to the current LA2024 Olympic bid, it's a perfect time to celebrate Peter Ueberroth’s career," said L.A. Sports Council President David Simon. "Thanks to his success in organizing the 1984 Olympic Games, Peter's legacy ranges from the creation of the LA84 Foundation, which is dedicated to youth sports, to his revolutionary financial model for running the Games, which since has been adopted by numerous host cities worldwide."

The "Lifetime Achievement Award" also is given in recognition of Ueberroth's distinguished service as Commissioner of Major League Baseball (1985-1989) and Chairman of the United States Olympic Committee (2004-2008).

The LA Sports Awards are presented annually by the Los Angeles Sports Council to celebrate the greatest moments of the year in sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area. The awards show will be televised by Fox Sports West/Prime Ticket (air dates TBA).

The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.

Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to the World Cup.

The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams and facilities.
