The Estadio Olimpico Pascual Guerrero: Football stadium 55k (the
biggest in Columbia). The stadium and the sports complex that
surrounds it were, from the 1950s to the 1970s, one of the finest
and most modern sports complexes in Latin America, and led to
references of Cali as the "Sports Capital of America".

Paris:
A feasibility study has mooted the idea of beach volleyball in the
shadow of the Eiffel Tower, archery on the Invalides Esplanade near
the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte and fencing in the Grand Palais
museum.

The Stade de France that held football's 1998 World Cup final and
Roland Garros, the venue for the French Open tennis, would also be
used.
With so many existing venues on the draft plan, only a new
swimming pool and a village for the 10,000 athletes would have to
be built.

gymnasium, handball and volleyball training courts)
