After the biggest year of athletics the country has ever seen, world-class athletics returns to London in 2013, exactly one year after the Opening Ceremony, with the London Anniversary Games taking place at the scene of last year's drama, at the Olympic Stadium in the newly created Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Tickets have already sold out for this three day athletics event when a host of Olympic stars will be in action at what is considered one of the best IAAF Diamond League meets in the world. Usain Bolt, Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis are among the 29 Olympic medallists, including 12 champions and four world record holders, who have, so far, been confirmed for the competition which takes place one year on from the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Games. Let the memories come flooding back...

About Olympic Stadium

The centre-point of the London 2012 Games, the £537 million Olympic Stadium, becomes a new permanent sports venue after the Games. Changes include reducing the seating capacity from 80,000 to 60,000 by removing the top layer of the stadium, a temporary lightweight steel and concrete upper tier. More about Olympic Stadium
