I don't know if this could be classed as a 'venue' but I came across this little jewel I thought I might share:

Don't know what they are boasting about. Newfoundland already has double seaters...

Can anyone find an aerial picture of the Sochi Olympic Park in 2007 before the venues were built? I'd love to see a "before and after" photo of Sochi from above, comparing with the Sochi of today.

I remember seeing one a few years back (well before I started on this site) and from memory it had a few industrial looking warehouses, a few houses and smallish farms on the site --- nothing particularly exciting.

Low and behold the next day after my request, Global News makes an article on the "then" and "now" of the Olympic Park. Thanks Leslie Young!

I know Sochi wanted it compact, but I would've made the ring bigger to allow for some more green space in between the centerpiece and the circular walkway/venues.

Never gonna happen. Disney has just recently rolled the dice on expanding into mainland China with Shanghai Disney due to open 2015/2016. There s rumours of them buying land near Xian as well. Further expansion of HK Disneyland is rumoured as well as a major overhaul of Tokyo Disney. I could see Universal Studios, Legoland or Warner Brothers Movieworld in Russia but I highly doubt Mickey and Co will move in.
