If you're new, Subscribe! → /> There's a lot involved in campaigning to host the Olympic Games. Even the loser cities spend an insane amount of money — and the winning cities take home just an estimated $5 to $6 billion (half of which goes to the Olympic Committee!). Hosting the games is a lose-lose situation, and cities all over the world pour millions and billions into construction that looks great on TV but is hugely impractical for everyday life. These stunning Olympic venues were left to be reclaimed by nature, graffiti artists, and more...

This is why the Olympics should be over as it's a colossal waste of money that could be better spent towards that countries poor or sick ,of recent memory Rio and it's poor were treated horribly as they were rounded up and taken out of the city but they also built walls so you couldn't see the poverty on TV as that wouldn't do! Plus add to the huge corruption the games now have, it's sickening!

terribly sad In 1973 stayed in the Rome Olympic Village .... used for student tours rooms VERYY sad and VERY unsafe. We had to lock all our collected souvenirs in the only closet any of us had that actually had a lock One student could not find her room key, asked at the front desk and she was given a MASTER KEY for the entire complex End of the hall the windows were cracked and plants were growing into the hall! ASKED WHY? Was told Roma and Italy could not agree who owned!

All of these Olympic ruins porn videos are the same. Never anything from well ran Olympics. Always Beijing, Sarajevo, Athens, and Rio. Never Sydney, Barcelona, LA, Atlanta, or London.

Salt Lake uses all of it's venues to this day.

hey man you should really do some more research on this. The bird nest in beijing is still one of the biggest tourist attractions. It hosts events almost every week and is indeed, not dead. I personally live in beijing and I think that I have a better view of what's happening to the bird nest.

Beijing will use the Bird Nest again in the upcoming Winter Olympics. After that, who knows?

Says it all! If something needs to be done for sport, all ‘sense’ goes out of the window, as does any cost consideration!
