The London Stadium, originally called Olympic Stadium, is part of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford. Construction began in 2008 for the 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympics, with the stadium being used to host the track and field events as well as the opening and closing ceremonies.
The stadium was designed by Sir Robert McAlpine and Populous, and is comprised of a number of tiers. During the Olympics, the stadium was able to hold more than 80,000 people. It is currently the home to West Ham United Football Club and is still an integral part of British Athletics.
