Moscow 1980( Soviet capital during XXII Summer Olympic Games)


The 1980 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXII Olympiad, were an international multi-sport event held in Moscow in the Soviet Union. In addition, the yachting events were held in Tallinn, and some of the preliminary matches and the quarter-finals of the football (soccer) tournament were held in Leningrad, Kiev, and Minsk. The 1980 Games were the first to be staged in Eastern Europe.

The 1980 Summer Olympics boycott of the Moscow Olympics was a part of a package of actions to protest the Soviet war in Afghanistan.


The United States was joined in the boycott by some other populous countries - including Japan, West Germany, China, the Philippines and Canada. Some of these countries competed at the Olympic Boycott Games in Philadelphia. Notably, the United Kingdom, France, and Greece supported the boycott but allowed their athletes to participate if they wished (the U.S. did not). The United Kingdom and France sent a much smaller delegation of athletes than usual. Nevertheless, the delegation of the United Kingdom was the largest among Western Europe, with 170 athletes applying to compete.[1] Spain, Italy, Sweden, Iceland and Finland were other principal nations representing western Europe,[1] though Italian athletes belonging to military corps did not attend the Games, due to the government's support of the boycott, which severely affected many events. Some American-born athletes who were citizens of other countries, such as Italy and Australia, did compete in Moscow.

Luzhniki Palace of Sports, formerly Palace of Sports of the Central Lenin Stadium, is a Sports Palace (arena) in Moscow, Russia, a part of the Luzhniki Sports Complex. Built in 1956, it originally had the spectator capacity of 13,700. In the past it was a host for World and European championships in ice hockey, gymnastics, volleyball, basketball, boxing and other sports.

It hosted the 1972 Summit Series between the Soviet Union and Canada and was a venue for gymnastics and judo events at the 1980 Summer Olympics.

Also was reconstructed for 1980.

The Druzhba Multipurpose Arena ( Luzhniki area) Was biult in 1979 ( capacity 3800 )
from luzhniki.ru


Sport complex Olimpiyski ( Prospekt Mira)
The makeup of the complex includes a covered stadium that can host 35,000 fans in the central arena (the floor is 10,000 mē) and a swimming pool that can host 12,000 fans. Thanks to a special soundproofing barrier, the main arena in 10-12 hours can be split into two separate halls.

The quick transformation is a unique feature of the stadium. In the span of 24 hours the biggest covered ice rink in the world (112x72 m) can be changed into the green carpet of a football field. With the help of movable bleachers it is easy to form a more compact sport hall (basketball, boxing, sport or artistic gymnastics, tennis, hockey). In 1980 Central Arena was the largest indoor arena in the world.
