Montreal Is The Most Instagrammed Olympic Stadiums Of All Time
Seoul Takes the 5th Place of All Olympic Cities
Seoul takes the 5th place of all Olympic cities

With the 2021 Olympics over in Tokyo, Orthopaedic expert FootActive, has analyzed the most instagrammed Olympic stadiums of all time to find out which location is the most popular to snap a pic.

Analyzing Instagram data to reveal which Olympic stadiums are the most popular, or photogenic, on Instagram. They analyzed hashtag data seeing the number of posts under location tags from #olympicstadium — for example #olympicstadiumberlin — the locations mentioned were based on the locations shown by Instagram on the suggested hashtags page.

Montreal

Montreal Olympic stadium is the most Instagrammed Olympic stadium of all time having been built in the 1970s for the 1976 summer Olympics. The original plans for the shell-like stadium included a 175m mast and retractable roof which was unfortunately not completed in time for the games due harsh winters and a labour strike. The stadium opened on July 17, 1976 holding a huge 76,000 spectators, 10 years later and the mast and roof were finally completed!

Tokyo

Tokyo is the least Instagrammed Olympic stadium of all time. The National Stadium was used as the main stadium for the Tokyo 1964 Olympic games, and is also hosting the current 2021 summer Olympics. Demolition of the old National Stadium was completed in May 2015, in the hope for the construction of the new stadium to begin on Dec. 11, 2016. However, the original plans for the new stadium were scrapped in 2015 by the Japanese prime minister due to increasing building costs. A new design created by architect Kengo Kuma was chosen in December 2015 to replace the original design, which was completed on Nov. 30, 2019.

London

In 2012 London hosted the summer Olympics, the stadium was constructed specifically for the 2012 Summer Olympics serving as the track and field venue and as the site for their opening and closing ceremonies. Since the games, the stadium has been renovated into a multi-purpose use and it is now the home of Premier League club West Ham United. Holding a staggering 80,000 for the Olympics and the Paralympics, it re-opened in July 2016 with 66,000 seats, but with capacity for football limited to 60,000 under the terms of the lease.

Beijing

Beijing National Stadium, also known as the Bird’s Nest has a 91,000 capacity. The stadium was designed for use throughout the 2008 Summer Olympics and Paralympics and will also be used again in the 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics. The unusual design originated from the study of Chinese ceramics with the steel beams being used to hide the supports for the retractable roof which in turn gives the stadium the appearance of a bird's nest.
