Is it like your thing to constantly comment on British weather on this forum? seriously, it's getting pretty embarrassing now, so leave it out.

On the other hand some great photos. The inside of the stadium is going to look great

it' was just a remark you know! You had the possibility to answer me in a pacific way but you search for battle word everytime

For example in the processus of redeployement of west ham in Statford you could give infos about the restructuration of roof etc...

If you are not able to be objective and take distance from your hate mood i can do nothing guy

but that just shows you were looking for an argument if u knew the roof was going to be extended when West Ham take it over. Please stop trying to cause an argument, though to be fair i dont think your as bad as you used to be. Its all really petty just end it please.

and p.s loads of people go to Wimbeldon to watch tennis on some courts that are not covered , its about the sport, not getting a tad wet.

Ehh... I might be out on a limb here but I find this a bit funny coming from you.

I like this stadium by the way. It will be a great olympic stadium and it looks really good with the black skelet.

Man arrested in London Olympic Park in explosives probe



A man has been arrested at the London Olympic Park site on suspicion of supplying an explosive substance.

The 61-year-old man was held as part of an ongoing investigation which saw two more arrests earlier in the week.

On Tuesday a 40-year-old female security guard was arrested near the Olympic Stadium in east London on suspicion of possessing explosives.

The man arrested on Friday evening has been taken to a police station in east London for questioning.

The Metropolitan Police said he was arrested by officers from the Olympic Site Support Unit at 1825 BST.

A 43-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday at his home in Wales on suspicion of possession of an explosive substance

Both he and the security guard arrested on Tuesday, who worked as a dog handler, have been released on bail until later this month.

Police previously said they did not believe the woman's arrest to be terror-related and said the Olympic site's safety had not been at risk.

Earlier this week building work was completed at the £486m Olympic Stadium, which will be the main venue for the games in the summer of 2012.

Yeah, test pieces. The Sophie Smallhorn proposal would look so good. Yep, please let it be her design for the actual stadium wrap.

no no no, not small enough. It looks like a haemorrhoid/ giant squid attack. It's been continuously slated in the British press and forums, notably too for Anish Kapoor's total sell-out to big business (lets use as much steel as possible from Lakshmi Mittal's companies, that are 'sponsoring' it).

As far as the roof goes I think you need to consider that London is in many ways in the opposite position of somewhere like Athens. In hotter climates you want a roof for summer events to provide shade while its much less important in winter. In the UK though its rarely hot enough that shade is a big factor but getting rained on in the middle of winter obviously is.

I guess the difference between Olympic Stadium and the other stadiums you have mentioned such as Emirate and Wembley is that Olympic stadium is only for temporary which is designed to host for Olympic moment. That's why they try to save as much money as possible IMO. I hope we will see more sophisticated design when the current one gets transformed into a new stadium

Wembley and Emirates primarily host events in the autumn, winter and spring months - the most likely seasons to experience precipitation.

The Olympics will be held in the summer.

That's not to say that it won't rain during Olympic athletics events. It almost certainly will at some point. But the probability of rain is greatly reduced in July.

It's not even halfway towards reaching its highest point yet.
