Description:
The modern Olympics have been held around the world. Cities have built special venues to host individual events or used existing locations. What has happened to them?
Expanded Description:

The Olympic Games, or Olympics, are an international multi-sport event taking place every four years and comprising summer and winter games. The Modern Olympic Games began in 1896.

The Summer Olympics (Games of the Olympiad) have been held every fourth year starting in 1896, except in 1916, 1940, and 1944 due to the World Wars. The Olympic Winter Games, was first held in 1924. The first winter Olympics competitions were originally held as a non-Olympic sports festival, but were declared to be official Games by the International Olympic Committee in 1925. Originally these were held in the same year as the Summer Olympics, but from 1994 on the Winter Games and the Summer Games have been held two years apart. (Wikipedia)

Each city that has hosted the Olympics has constructed venues or used existing facilities to host the various events. After the Games have ended, these facilities remain. What has become of them?

The International Olympic Committee maintains a website providing the cities where each of the summer and winter Olympic Games have been hosted. They also maintain a website listing the official and historic sports.


To be listed a site must:
• Have been used in an official sport during one of the Olympics
• Be at the start or finish of long distance events
Long distance events can be waymarked at the start and finish, with the route included in the description(s) until there is the option to upload a waypoint file.
