October 4 – arena

☆  arena 競技場


An arena is a place where sports, entertainment, and other public events take place. It can also be a called a stadium. So, what is happening for the Olympics next year? Are they building a new arena? I haven’t really followed the developments that much, so I’m not sure what is being planned.

I just looked on Wikipedia, and it says the old arena was demolished, and a new one is being built and almost finished. Is that right?? Wow, that’s a big thing to do for a one-time event! Obviously, the plan is to use the arena for lots of other events, right, but Wikipedia says it wasn’t ready in time for last August’s rugby championships. Is that right? In that case, what arena did they use for rugby?

How do you feel about the 2020 Olympics and this new arena?
