Interesting to see the Big O hosting the World Gymnastic Championship right now. Read this in an article (re configuration) "The sold-out crowd of nearly 11,000 at Montreal's Olympic Stadium cheered Black and Moors every step of the way."

I'm no architect or engineer but is the only sustainable future for the Big O to totally gut the inside and turn it into a 30k seat rectilinear stadium and to convert the remaining space to an NTC facility. I believe the latter part about becoming an NTC is in their plans.

Olympic Stadium is barely recognizable as the competition is being held in a blacked out stadium aside from the floor.

Just as a footnote to the video Canada's Ellie Black won the silver medal in the all around (must have had a great day in the other events cuz the beam was kinda ugly) Otherwise congrats to her on a fantastic accomplishment.
