Speed Skating in Sochi 2014
The Olympic Oval in Sochi is located in the Olympic Park and looks like an iceberg or an ice fault. A crystal face theme will be supported by angular walls and triangular stained-glass windows. The gray and white color of the building will further enhance this impression.
The Olympic Oval, called Adler Arena, is designed to make the utmost use of local natural features. Spectators will be able to admire scenic mountain views to the north and seascapes to the south. For this reason, the walls along the sides of the skating rink will be made as transparent as possible.
The central focus of the coastal cluster will be the Olympic Park. It will connect up all competition venues, the parking zone and the infrastructure elements. For the first time in the history of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, all ice arenas will be within walking distance of one other. The Olympic Park will be able to accommodate about 75,000 visitors when full.
This 8,000 seat Olympic Oval in Sochi has been commissioned in September 2012 for test competitions. The first international races that took place in the Adler Arena were the Essent ISU World Single Distances Championships 2013, March 21-24, 2013.
After the Olympic Games, the Olympic Oval will be used as an exhibition center.
