2015 Athletics World Champs


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...
When Barcelona lost 2013 to Moscow, the possibility to go after for 2015 or 2017 was not ruled out at all. I guess a new bid from Australia should be expected too sooner or later. Maybe Istanbul shoud bid?

there are rumors about it but not sure... though we already built our olympic stadium with 80.000 capacity...

Istanbul needs as many world champs to boost it's sporting heritage in Olympic related sports. However I have heard the Ataturk Olympic Stadium is out in the middle of nowhere with awful public transport links. One of the 2008 Olympic Bid legacy items was a train line to the stadium that was meant to be built rgardless of whether or not the bid was successful - has that happened?

I guess they feel they are to far from the pitch, right?

It's a beautiful stadium! Do you know how much was spent to build it?

Only the refurb of the Maracanã stadium costed around 210 million USD for the 2007 PanAm games and the constructions of the 45,000 seat João Havelange stadium around 200 millin USD...
