Olympic stadium concept

The 80,000 seat Olympic Stadium designed by a consortium of local and international architects, consists of 30,000 permanent and 50,000 temporary seats. The iconic roof structure consists of a series of movable and modular fabric roof structures - supported by timber trusses - and will be reconfigured to provide cover to the remaining 30,000 seats in legacy mode. The remaining structures and seats will built elsewhere as two new community athletics venue, the cost of which has been included in the total cost of the stadium.

Construction would begin as early as 2011 and will include various phases. The first phase which includes all groundworks and services will include the construction of the 30,000 seat bowl. From early 2012 until late 2014 the venue will host a variety of events including athletic events. The final phase which includes the addition of 50,000 temporary seats, the public concourse, VIP and Olympic Family areas as well as additional spectators services will start in January 2015. The roof , to be constructed off-site will be installed from June 2015 to December 2015.

Nice stadium design Mo, did you do that one?

yip. same idea as London 2012, just an easier transformation from olympic to legacy mode, with community venues getting the remaining parts of the structure, I think sydney did that with the temporary expansion of its aquatic centre, which was rebuilt as a football venue i think.

very nice design there Mo and congrats on doing it yourself. I know how long doing things like that can take...but its already been done

The Olympic stadium is inspired by the conceptual design of Perth Stadium( if it ever gets built), except this stadium can actually host athletics.

The roof structures are not fixed, and can be moved to rotate around the stadium providing cover during legacy mode.

The sketchup model takes about 30 minutes, since the roof structures are exactly the same, just resized and copy and paste. The stadium bowl takes ten minutes or so, the rendering probably takes longer than actually designing the model.

half an hour...get out! thats stunning for 30mins of work.

FYI, the perth stadium is locked in for construction. It has funding, it just now needs a design (i believe it will be changed from the current one) and a site will be chosen in March.

Cape Town to use major cycling events to promote Olympic bid

The city of Cape Town will use three major cycling events this year to promote its 2016 Olympic bid.

The Cape Argus Pick 'n Pay Cycle Tour, the world's largest individually timed cycle race - and the first event outside Europe to be included in the International Cycling Union's Golden Bike Series - sees over 35 000 cyclists tackling a 109km route around Cape Town that is as spectacular as it is gruelling. Traditionally staged on the second Sunday of March, the country's biggest one-day sporting event is fast becoming a big international drawcard - and increasingly a boon for business and tourism in the Western Cape.

The second event, the Absa Cape Epic is the largest mountain bike stage race in the world. The event takes place between March and April this year. The route changes every year, and leads aspiring amateur and professional mountain bikers from around the world through approximately 900 kilometres of the unspoilt nature of the Western Cape and up approximately 16 000m of climbing over some of the most magnificent passes in South Africa. For the first time the 2008 race will start with a time trial prologue on Friday in Knysna.

The third major cycling event, the 2008 UCI World Junior Cycling Championships, at the Bellville Velodrome, sees the elite of junior cycling world converge on Cape Town. The event takes place 12-20 July 2008.
