The Olympics are coming up soon. The games are notorious for being shit for cities and their residents. Is there any benefit, from a transportation or urban planning perspective, to having the Olympics or any similar sports event to a city? Have there been any benefits or successes that came out of a city hosting a major sports event recently? What sort of future will these mega-events have on the future of cities?
