Last Hurrah For Bislett

Postby Guest » Fri Jun 27, 2003 5:16 am

With all the talk and press about the last meet ever at Bislett, I want to know if anyone has a copy of a Sports Illustrated article in the mid-1980s about the stadium and all the world records set there.

I think the article said that the one of the straightways was measured to be downhill!

The way the stadium is shoehorned by neighborhood streets reminds me of Fenway or Wrigley. Bislett certainly has as much history and aura.

I also can't believe there is no U.S. TV of this meet.
