And finally… Abandoned Olympic venues as they look today

Eerie photos of abandoned Olympic venues have been published by The Telegraph.

While the Olympic Park in London has seen the main stadium. velodrome and aquatics centre all remain in use, what remains of Olympic venues in other countries is less impressive.

Much of the Marousi complex in Athens, which hosted the 2004 Games, now lies derelict despite an estimated £9 billion outlay by the Greek government to bring the Olympics home.

The venues for the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo are also now abandoned with the Yugoslav Wars to blame.

Even the venues for the 2008 Beijing Olympics have suffered with little sign of life at the former rowing facility, baseball field or beach volleyball stadium.
