Extra stadium info – Olympiastadion Berlin

The stadium was built for the Games of the Olympiad in 1936. It also possessed a special stand for Adolf Hitler and his political associates. The venue broke the record attendance for a baseball game, when 110,000 spectators showed up. The 2006 FIFA World Cup final, which was won by the national football team of Italy after defeating France, was played at the stadium. It was the most watched sports match in 2006. The Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt set the 100 metres world record of 9.58 seconds at the stadium in 2009. He won his first gold medal in athletics at the Games of the Olympiad in 2008 and he became the first sprinter with 10 million followers on his main social media page.
