Sunday Snap – The Olympic Stadium

We were up in West Yorkshire for last week's Sunday Snap. The church within the Civil War damaged church was situated in the liquorice sweet making town of


Our history loving, sweet toothed readers with the right answer last week were Susan, Sarah, Jen and Sam.

For this week we go from an ancient building to a decidedly more modern structure. I took this photograph last year whilst Mr JibberJabber was running the inaugural Hackney Half Marathon. The Olympic Stadium was of course the focal point of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Since the end of the Olympic Games it has been used for several athletics events and in 2017 it will host the World Athletics and International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Athletics World Championships. Currently a number of 2015 Rugby World Cup games are taking place in the stadium with the Bronze medal match scheduled for 30 October. From the start of 2016-2017 football season West Ham will be playing their home games here. The work you can see that is going on is part of a new roof to allow all-weather protection for spectators and better acoustics for music concerts.

As well the this stadium there are a number of other sports facilities in this park such as the VeloPark, Aquatics Centre and The Copper Box. Its full name is far more noble than just the 'Olympic Park'. This week's question is

What is the official name of the Olympic Park?

We were joined last week by Snoskred's poorly cat. Eagle-eyed Sophie was able to capture one of the smallest wild bird about in the Goldcrest. Kara's was enjoying a trip on a steam train. A little miss was forever blowing bubbles over at Susan's. There was autumn fashion and fun for the pair at Jack's Paper Moon. For Betty it was a chance to show off some of New Zealand's beautiful blooms.
