As impossible as the imagined New York Winter Olympic Venues may be, they are certainly not as controversial as the current host's accommodations. Of course, it is not Sochi's venues that are under such heated debate, but the country's belief and legal system as a whole. Yet that just goes to show how people would opt more for fantasy than the reality any day of the week.
Since losing the 2012 bid to host the Summer Olymics, the New York Times decided to envision what it would look like with New York Winter Olympic Venues scattered throughout Manhattan. From a winding luge in Time's Square to alpine events in Central Park and sky slopes above the New York Public Library and Bryant Park, the possibilities are endless and, unfortunately, quite ludicrous.
New York Winter Olympic Venues are Imaginatively Impossible
1. Imagined Urban Olympic Venues - There could be a trend towards urbanizing Olympic venues, creating viral attention to the event experience.
2. Alternative Olympics - Creating alternative Olympics, adding more fun events, and making the venues more accessible could be a trend in the future.
3. Virtual Reality Olympics - With the help of VR technology, experiencing the Olympics in a completely new way could be the future trend.
1. Tourism - Creating unique urban Olympic venues could be an opportunity for tourism businesses to attract people and provide a memorable experience.
2. Sporting Goods - Alternative Olympic events could create opportunities for sporting goods manufacturers to create new products catering to the new sports that form part of the event.
3. Technology - The future virtual reality Olympics trend could create a bright future for technology businesses, including VR hardware manufacturers and software developers.
