Copper Box

 

Brazil vs Croatia 28th July 2012 1400hrs GMT

Copper Box, London Olympic Park

 

The Copper Box was the venue for the Handball, goal ball and fencing discipline of the modern pentathlon.

 

A fascinating venue, the design incorporateslight pipes and rainwater collectors to reduce both energy and water use by 40%.


When the Games are over, the venue will be adapted to become a multi-sport arena for community use, athlete training and small-to-medium scale events. It will be the only permanent indoor arena retained in the Olympic Park.

This must be the post-modern pentathlon, SAVO as the old-modern version doesn't include team games...

I'm sure it is a national asset SAVO
Fine shot. I enjoyed the handball
It seems to be a wonderful arena! I'm sure you'll enjoy many more events there in the future!
Great capture here.
