I'm pretty sure if you visited Beijing four years before you'd probably say the same thing. London will most likely go through a transformation like any Olympic host city before it. Duh.

Love the legacy mode but we really need a bigger aquatics centre in the first place than whats being shown to the world in the olympics. Don't the ODA understand that the design looks quiet frankly terrible no matter how pretty the visuals. As a national sports centre surely 2500 capacity is very small in 'Legacy' mode.

well i doubt they intend to host major swimming events after the Games. 2500 is fine, the legacy is the three pools and the fact that its indoor..but is legacy really worth the 250m pounds?

On the olympic park subject. I don't fancy the stadium very much... But I really like the renders of the aquatic centre. Makes me think of a crossover between Calatrava and buildings in Brasilia.

London is not shit, it just needs some improvents. Metro defintly needs a facelift. There definetly needs to be a lot of buildings repainting.

And alot of cleaning.

Give it time. It's a wonderful city that has already produced two Olympics. It will deliver.
