A city being chosen to host the Olympics is a major happening for all its citizens and has been so for more than 100 years now. But sometimes, these imposing constructions are leaving a desolate feeling behind them after the event is consumed. What use does any city have for huge stadiums and athlete housing if they’re not constantly hosting major sporting events? Reconditioning and reusing is the key. One thing is for sure, hosting the Olympics leaves a huge impact on a city and the more time passes, the more cities we have who have been involved in this. ┬áSo what if thousands of years from now there will be no new places to host them? Well then I guess the whole planet will be an ex-olympic village.
