Modern Olympic Stadiums

In most Olympics, the ‘Olympic Stadium’ is the name usually given to the stadium of the Summer Olympic Games. Traditionally, the opening and closing ceremonies and the athletics are held in the Olympic Stadium. In some cases, the host city has built from scratch the Olympic Stadium, as was the case with the London Olympic Stadium. However, other cities prefer to improve their existing stadiums, modernising them in order to give a better performance during the Games, as was the case with the Athens Olympic Stadium. Due to their significant position within the Games, countless amounts of money and effort are put into achieving the best result possible. Below we see the last 4 stadiums which played a major role during the last Olympics (Sydney, Athens, Beijing, and London).
