London Olympic Stadium Chosen To Host British Athletics London Grand Prix
Published January 25, 2013
ATHLETES ENTHUSED: Also in London, Simon Hart wrote the decision to move the athletics event "has drawn an enthusiastic response from athletes." Olympic heptathlon Gold Medalist Jessica Ennis described the news as "brilliant." Ennis: "It will give athletes and fans who did not get to experience the amazing venue the chance to go there, and for those of us who had the most incredible experiences on the track and field, an opportunity to relive a few memories." The Crystal Palace meeting "usually attracts a sell-out crowd" of 22,000. However, "UK Athletics officials are optimistic" that the 80,000-seat Olympic Stadium could reach capacity (TELEGRAPH, 1/24).
