Olympic Stadium, Mexico Stadium


Mexico City was considered a controversial choice to host the 1968 Olympic Games because of the city's high altitude, but the thin air proved an advantage in some events, such as short-distance running, jumping, and throwing, all of which were held in the Estadio Olímpico Universitario. Architects Augusto Pérez Palacios, Raúl Salinas, and Jorge Bravo adopted a system of construction based on stepped terraces made from local volcanic stone, which also clads the exterior of the 1952 building. A mural by Diego Rivera adorns the stadium’s side.
