London 2012 Olympic Park: Venues

London 2012 Olympic Park: Venues As host city of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, London, England built a number of temporary and permanent world-class sporting venues in Stratford’s Olympic Zone. From the striking curved architecture of the Olympic Stadium, to the unique shape of the Velodrome – otherwise known as "the Pringle" – to the colors of the Riverbank Arena, these venues are distinct. The handball arena – known as the Copper Box – is another inimitable building, as it is completely covered in copper. Many of these spots will remain in use for the city’s inhabitants and tourists to enjoy once the Olympics are over. In this video, WatchMojo.com learns more about the venues found at London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
