The 1932 Summer Olympics (officialy known as the Games of the X Olympiad) was an event held in Los Angeles, United States. No other cities made a bid to host the Olympics for the first time since 1912 when Stockholm was the only city to make a bid.
Tennis, Rugby and Volleyball were dropped from the Olympic Games while Shooting was brought back. This put the number of sports down to 15.

The big controversy of the athletics program was in the Men's 5000 metres when Lauri Lehtinen blocked Ralph Hill on the final straight. This move was noticed and disqualified Lehtinen, putting Hill as the gold medalist.
