London broke the world record today for constructing an Olympic Stadium as officials announced home to the 2012 games is completed ahead of time and under budget.


As the last piece of the turf was draped onto the field, Olympic officials celebrated the great news. It took London workers only 1,000 days to build the 80,000-seat Stratford stadium.


According to The Telegraph, the final bill for the project is estimated to be about £486 million ($776 million USD), which is just under budget by about £10 million ($15 million USD). The 2012 Summer Olympics kick off July 27 of next year from London. 


Commenting to the press, London Mayor Boris Johnson stated, "The real joy of being so far ahead is that, unlike any other host city,
we are already able to focus on securing the legacy we are so
determined to deliver from the Games."
