Appropriate, perhaps, to return to the Olympic Stadium for the 100th lovelondonscenes. We were there yesterday to watch some athletics – the Sainsbury Anniversary Games, part of the Diamond series of international competition.
I enjoyed the opportunity, too, to see how West Ham’s future home is shaping up. It’s OK!

About John S
I'm blogging about the things I love: music, sport, culture, London, with some photos to illustrate aspects of our wonderful city. I’ve written a novel called “The Decision”, a futuristic political thriller, and first of a trilogy. I’m also the author of a book on music since the 1970s called “ I Was There - A Musical Journey” and a volume of poetry about youth, “Growin’ Up - Snapshots/ Fragments”. All available on Amazon and Kindle.
Lovely pictures, John. You picked the right day to be there.
I still can’t quite come to terms with the Irons taking over this magnificent building. Nothing against West Ham, you understand – I think I’d have the same objection with any football team. It will just feel somehow – sullied? But I really must get over my mawkish post-Olympic reverie. Life moves on…..
Getting 40-50 thousand people there every other week will transform the place. It is great, but it’s underpopulated at the moment. So big that it needs numbers.
Sullied by Sullivan?
I think it’s great that we don’t have a white elephant on our hands.
I reckon in time to come it will be recognised as an amazing deal for WHU and for the East End.
Beijing is just an empty tourist shell and many of the SA and Brazil WC venues are not used any more so best not to be too sentimental Dood.
With you there.
Wow! That looks like an amazing venue! Congrats!
Gonna be awesome to watch my team playing there, from August 2016.
Yeah!!! Only 1 year left to wait! How very exciting!!!
