Since the origin of Olympics in 1896, sports events have gained a massive popularity worldwide. These events are big for all countries and a matter of great pride and responsibility for the host nation. It gives host a chance to reflect upon their cultural values & promote tourism. Huge sums of public money is invested in organising these events, out of which a major chunk is invested in preparing the venues for sports events to be witnessed by global audience.
