OLYMPIC GOLD


After seven years of waiting, the 2012 Olympics Games are finally here. We take a look at the main venues where all the action is taking place


OLYMPIC STADIUM OPENING & CLOSING CEREMONIES ATHLETICS


DESIGN AND BUILD: Designed by Populous with legacy in mind, the Olympic Stadium’s 80,000 capacity can be reduced after the Games. It has a permanent lower tier with a capacity of 25,000, and a temporary steel and concrete upper tier, which holds a further 55,000 spectators, that can be dismantled after the Games. The temporary upper tier means that amenities such as catering and toi- lets have been designed as individual pods, located in temporary facilities around the outside of the stadium.

AFTER THE GAMES: The London Legacy Development Corporation and Mayor of London Boris Johnson have taken the decision to keep the Olympic Stadium under public ownership once the Games are over. Its design is flexible enough to accommodate a number of differ- ent requirements and capacities. It will retain athletics at its core, and will also be a venue for a range of other sporting, cultural and commu- nity events – including the 2015 IAAF World Championships.
