Olympic Stadium ready for Bolt and Farah

The world’s fastest man Usain Bolt will be racing at the London Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park this evening. The football-mad Jamaican sprinter, who holds the 100m and 200m world records and won Olympic Gold in London in 2012, will race in the 200m in West Ham’s new home tonight.
On Super Saturday Team GB London 2012 heroes Jessica Ennis-Hill and Mo Farah and dozens of other world-class track and field stars will take to the track. With hundreds of West Ham fans expected to attend the Muller Anniversary Games over the weekend, the club have extended their mega store opening hours until 7pm on Friday. Additionally, the Store will also be open on Saturday 23 July between 9am-5pm.
Below are of some pictures of the former Olympic Stadium ready for this weekend’s Athletics diamond league meeting.

  1. Wondered how they was going to change the seating around so quickly ,the above picture shows what they are up to. The east stand is three quarters extended and covering where the Long jump was, which looks like its been moved to the other side.The seating steps in at the ends ,( blue area) and you can see where the rest of the stands are still in Athletics mode.So in summary its 20% Football mode 80% Athletics mode at the moment.

  2. East stand not three quarters extended it is 100% extended into football mode. It was always going to be 20 metres away from pitch at half way line. The other stands will start to move on Monday. It is the north and south stands which cover the running track, not the the east and west stands

    • I 100% agree with you that the East Stand in the middle is fully extended but the ends step in which leaves approximately three blocks either end uncompleted.This is of course dependent on where the official line of where East Stand ends and North and South stand starts.
