|At the "Wembley" stadium an opening ceremony of the post-war games was greeted with enthusiasm. At that time, of course, any high sport results weren’t expected, neither pomposity of opening ceremony nor any special concerns for extra comfort for England sports fans. But the fact that nations were able to hold world sports festival shortly after World War II was the confirmation of energy of Olympic movement.
XV Olympic Games were held in Helsinki in 1952 received more participants and spectators. Sixty nine national teams, and for the first time in Olympic Games life came athletes of the Soviet Union. High sports results achieved by athletes at the Olympics-52 largely resulted due to good conditions of sports inventory and proper organization, as well as due to specially constructed sports facilities.
The stadium includes a treadmill (400 m), soccer field, track and field sectors. Main grandstand sheltered canopy. Under it are auxiliary facilities.
1956 marked a new stage in development of Olympic movement. XVI Olympic Games were held for the first time on the Australian continent in Melbourne. A big geographical distance of the new Olympic City from other countries participants, unusual climatic conditions created difficulties for the participants and guests of The Games to arrive to Australia. But the organizers have put a lot of effort to overcome these obstacles. High achievements in sports illustrated envoys of various countries were the best compliment to the organizing committee.|
