  1. An unlimited government bankroll can buy perfect (unless you are dealing with mechanical Olympic rings).

  2. It depends on the sports. Swimming, wrestling, shooting, boxing, volleyball and especially gymnastics attracts a lot of attention and the venues are pretty full. Archery is held on the Tofik Babhramov stadium with 32K capacity and beach volleyball is held on one of the arenas in EG Park. The issue with attendance of those two is as follows: one has an extremely large capacity for an archery tournament and the second one is only partly covered so it is very hot to watch the games in a sunny weather. It is +32 in Baku

  4. You're right. There won't be an athletics track. Such a pity, IMO. This was the closest to a National Stadium that Madrid was going to have, but now it looks likely not to be the Olympic Stadium of a future Madrid bid, and that's strange taking into account that the Aquatics Centre is being built right next to it. As for Turkey hosting the next European Games, yes, it's basically the same culture as Azerbaijan, but it's not Turkey or Azerbaijan's fault that the "traditional" European nations do not even want to bid!

  6. Ottawa Committee Releases Venue Map Clockwise from top-left: Venue Map, Distance Overview (square represents athletes' village), Rail Transportation, Preliminary Festival Zones After leaked preliminary plans surfaced earlier this week, the Ottawa Organizing and Planning Committee for the Pan and ParaPan American Games of Ontario, Canada (OOPCPPAGOC) has publicly revealed the expected final venue plan. "It's only suppose to represent a general idea of where the venues are spread out and located," says Bob, the leader of the OOPCPPAGOC. Most events seem to be contained within one circular area with a 16km (10mi) radius. Most events will be held within Ottawa city limits, but several will be held in nearby Gatineau across the river. Three main clusters are shown: the Downtown Cluster (which mostly comprises of temporary venues), the Riverbank Cluster (featuring new community facilities for post games use), and the Rideau Cluster (home of the IBC and possible Athletes' Village location). The venues' close proximity will offer a festive atmosphere, which combined with the numerous of other events held in the city during the time, will create a buzzing environment for tourists, residents, and athletes to enjoy. Ottawa's numerous green spaces and cultural/tourist destinations will also take part of the grand festival. Neighborhoods are encouraged to organize activities of their own.
