The Olympic Stadium, Amsterdam

The Olympic Statium (Dutch: Olympisch Stadion) was built as the main stadium for the 1928 Summer Olympics.

Fire did not appear at the modern Olympics until 1928. Dutch architect Jan Wils had included a tower in his design for the Olympic stadium for the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics and came up with the idea of having a fire burn throughout.
