The Sochi 2014 Olympic Stadium (Fisht, designed by Populous) is featured on a 100 rouble banknote.
The transformation of the 2012 Olympic Stadium has started. The seats in the lower bowl were removed and the track is covered with soil and concrete. The next step is the removal of the 14 iconic floodlights. The new roof will be completed by spring 2015.
New retractable seating will be installed from October 2015. The transformation works are completed in the summer of 2016.
From 2016 the stadium will be used for football (West Ham United) and athletics (annual Diamond League meeting).
A map and list of all Olympic host cities has been added to the site. (go to page)

As a major element of the 2012 Games legacy, The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will be transformed to create a new metropolitan district of the capital. A permanent display at NLA shows the changes that will be taking place as part of the wider Legacy Masterplan which is overseen by the London Legacy Development Corporation.
