Olympic Park in London is going to be amazing! The venues look great and finishing touches happening. On the 15th of July we had a quick look.

yes,the london fireworks is the best firework show on earth!but still i think Beijing Bird Nest have a very great,strong and firm design also a better lighting effect at night..but im not saying london is bad,it was still looking great but not the best,i think most probably because of the messy layout with all those messy lighting on temporary tent and structure..beijing look very clean,tidy and well organized

Just remember that there is still building equipment and final touches to be finished. After that, it will look as good as, if not better than what Beijing had to offer

That's impressive... every single thing you just said in that post was completely wrong.

The stadium is an adaptable design with a games set-up and a post-games configuration. After the games the winning bidder for the stadium will have the option to take over the stadium in its current form or to go ahead with the removal of the temporary ring reducing it from 80,000 to 60,000 seats. This will not take place before the World Athletic Championships in 2017.

Nobody has won the bid yet, nobody has been preferred or even shortlisted for it yet. LLDC have guaranteed that any plan involving the demolition of the stadium will not be considered. The athletics legacy MUST be retained.

Football will be the most likely end user but there are several large clubs with a very great need for modern large capacity stadiums, including West Ham...

Nothing new there...

Olympic Opening Ceremony Length Slashed:

A spokesman said the scenes are being tightened to ensure it finishes on time after concerns were raised that the audience would not be able to reach transport links afterwards.

http://news.sky.com/story/961614/oly...length-slashed
Turns out only a motorcycle stunt jump has been completely omitted, I'm guessing the rest of the scenes are just being shortened.

SO143, I know you love posting pictures all over this site but do you even read what they're of before you do?

The first picture you've posted, and the wrong information along with it, is of Spurs' failed plan for the area. This is not what's being built in the Olympic Park - it was merely a proposal. In actual fact, the Olympic stadium is being kept much the same as it is now in fact, with the temporary sections remaining in place and it is likely West Ham will play there.

The stadium you posted in the second picture IS being built - not at the Olympic Park - but in place of White Hart Lane, Spurs' current stadium in North London.

Wow
what a change from a toxic dead area - to today. Even the soil had to be cleaned and old German bombs removed!
Area was full of toxic waste.

Will the Olympic Park be opened for public during the games? I mean not the sport facilities, but only the green area around the venues.

You can buy Park only tickets for the first week of the Games and I think for the Paralympics as well.

Everybody keeps talking about and posting pictures of these arenas for lesser sports, but the biggest part of the Summer Olympics is gymnastics. So, the big question I have is, where the heck is the gymnastics supposed to take place? And shouldn't it feature more prominently in the Olympic park?
