Olympic Stadium
_OLYMPIC STADIUM_ is the name usually given to the main stadium of an Olympic Games. An Olympic stadium is the site of the opening and closing ceremonies. Many, though not all, of these venues actually contain the words _Olympic Stadium_ as part of their names. Olympic Stadium may also be named a multi-purpose stadium which hosts Olympic sports. In the case of the Summer Olympics , athletics competitions and the football final are traditionally held in the Olympic Stadium. Exceptions to this have occurred though at the 1900 , 1996 and 2016 Summer Olympics as well as at the 2010 and 2018 Summer Youth Olympic Games . Early Winter Games often used figure skating venues as focal points. These were often designated as the Olympic Stadium, usually hosting the opening and closing ceremonies. A number of stadiums have been used in more than one Olympics, in those cities that have held the Games more than once
