Vancouver After The Olympics
FILE - This is a Friday, Feb. 26, 2010 file photo of Team Canada as tghey skates during the women's team pursuit quarterfinals speed skating race at the Richmond Olympic Oval at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia. For athletes and spectators at Sochi, it’s time to pack up. But for the host cities, the real challenge begins with the end of the Olympics. How do they continue to use the expensive stadiums after the party’s over? What happens to the athletes’ villages? What is the legacy of the games?. All games venues in Vancouver remain in use, with local authorities funding a $110 million trust to make sure that they don’t fall into disrepair. (AP Photo/Chris Carlson, File)
