Another Nail in the Olympic Stadium Bid
Surely Sullivan and Gold will now have to accept defeat. The behind the scene plans to tear up the running track have now been consigned to the rubbish bin for 99 years and any hope of rebranding the stadium will now be frustrated until 2017 at the earliest. Do we really want to be tenants in an athletics stadium? I was always opposed to the move but whilst there was the prospect of owning the lease and squeezing out track and field nonsense, I could see some logic to it. Now the only reason for moving would be so Sullivan and Gold can profit from the redevelopment of the Boleyn.
Still, I suppose this gives Karren Brady a new renaming opportunity. West Ham Olympic received a luke warm reception but with the awarding of the World Championships, perhaps we could become West Ham WC!
