The question of “what will happen to Olympics 2020” is one that has been asked more lately. We all saw the terrible pictures of the stadiums that were built for the games, the luxury hotels that have turned into ghost towns after the games, and the areas where the athletes stay in. It does not look like the area will ever be able to be completed according to plan. There is a lot of concern over what will happen to those areas once the games are over. Many are worried that the infrastructure would not be able to handle the huge influx of visitors, business people, and travelers which follow the conclusion of the games.
The problem with these venues is that they were designed as temporary venues. The Olympic Games is also prone to turning into money-making projects for organizers and the private parties involved in producing the event. There is a great deal of money that goes into producing such an event, and if there is a loss after the event, then losses of that scale will need to be dealt with. This means that there will need to be a major transformation of the venues and the surrounding areas in order to ensure that everything goes smoothly.
The other thing to watch out for is the future of transportation links. Where will the athletes and competitors go to get to the venues for the events which they are competing in? Some believe that it might be better to create new venues at the locations which were not used for the Olympic Games. Others believe that the current roads and airports are already too full to support large events, and that a new venue should be built to handle the additional traffic which will undoubtedly come into the area. Of course, the exact details of how things will work out in the future may vary, depending on how the final planning of all the events and venues takes shape.
What Will Happen
One other big issue that is coming up during the planning stages of any potential future Olympics is the idea of what will happen to the athletes who have currently qualified for those events. Many believe that the events which have yet to take place will be moved to higher class venues, but there are also those who believe that the medals that have been won so far should be rewarded. The question of what will happen to the medals after the event has taken place has become a highly emotional topic for both the organizing committee and the athletes themselves. The question of what will happen to the medals has become one of the biggest causes for controversy and acrimony in the weeks leading up to the Olympics.
No matter what the final decision is as to what will happen to the Olympic Park, there will most likely be major changes to many of the venues which surround it. The stadium will most likely have to undergo major renovations, and will also have to upgrade its facilities. The Athletes themselves will also have to make some changes to their training, and may have to move to a new venue. For instance, if the Athletes’ Village were to move to a different location then they would not be able to train during the months when they are scheduled to train. Similarly, if the venues which host the sports events have been damaged then the games that are being held there won’t be as large of a sporting event as they otherwise would have been. For instance, if the stadium which was hosting the 2020 Beijing Olympics was damaged by strong winds, there is a strong chance that the 2020 games will be held in a different venue, and that the overall scope and scale of the events could be much larger.
It’s also interesting to speculate as to what will happen to the Olympic Park once all the major sporting events have taken place there. Will the organizers attempt to hold a World Cup again in the future? Could the stadium which hosted the 1988 Atlanta Olympics is using to host the 20 sporting events which will be taking place in the London area in the future? Will the Olympic Park to be revamped and upgraded before it becomes another venue for major events? It’s also possible that the current tenants of the Park will be moved out once the construction is complete, and the site cleared for an entirely new development.
