What are the Best and Worst Olympic Legacies in your opinion?

Many factors to consider:

Venues: White Elephants or thriving stadiums?

Sports: Increase in participation + legacy for elite athletes?

Economy: Boost or Bust?

Environment: eg. Did Beijing smog decrease?

Transport? Improved facilites

What about human rights/democracies? Did 88 bring democracy to Seoul?

Anything else you want to consider?
