7 Wonders of the Sports World

7 Wonders of the Sports World

ALEXANDER F. YUAN/AP FILE PHOTO
Fireworks explode over China's National Stadium, also known as the Bird's Nest, during the rehearsal for the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games, Beijing, China, Aug. 2, 2008.

More Star lists
Jun 28, 2009 04:30 AM

1. The Bird's Nest:
Beijing's Olympic National Stadium vies with Munich's Allianz Arena for the world's leader in sports playpen wow-factor. But there's function with that form - most of the cross-hatched steel beams hold the thing up.

2. Rogers Centre: The world's first retractable roof stadium, and still one of the most practical.

3. Fenway Park: Fenway's Green Monster and irregular shape, and to a lesser extent Wrigley Field with its ivy-covered walls, served as models for today's quirky retro-park designs with all the mod cons.

4. Wembley: With its iconic arch that supports one stand and part of the other, it cost a world-record 798 million pounds to build.

5. Monaco F1 course: Last street course remaining in F1 racing winds around the narrow streets, through a tunnel and skirts the harbour of one of Europe's ritziest cities.

6. Pebble Beach: Pebble or Cypress Point, best place for golf (Old Course at St. Andrew's would argue the point), and you might run into Clint Eastwood.

7. Panathinaiko Stadium:
Athens' ancient stadium rebuilt and refurbished for the first Olympic Games of modern times (in 1896) is wildly out of tune with today's world - which makes it an utterly beguiling window on sports' distant past.

The new wembley is widely cosidered as a architectural failure. It's a rather ugly and "cold" stadium.

^ Actually, Melbourne's F1 is at Albert Park, in which the track in the course of the lake. No actual streets, as most leading into the park are cut off for the event.

But the rest of the year they are open to the public, as well as venues such as Bob Jane Stadium along the course.

Wimbledon centre court looked amazing last night. It was the first time they had used the lights to finish a tennis match at wimbledon.

Yeah, it's open to the public but the road itself serves little purpose other than to provide access to a few carparks near the lake.
