From July 23-31, 1982, an unprecedented crowd of 250,000 spectators saw more than 2,600 U.S. athletes compete in 33 sports descend upon Indianapolis. Fifty-eight National Sports Festival records were broken in track and field, swimming, and archery.
Indianapolis was the first host city in the festival’s history to present the USOC with a profit. During the years that it was held, National Sports Festival was the largest Olympic-style, multi-sport event in the United States. It was renamed United States Olympic Sports Festival in 1986 and came to an end in 1995.
