It was during this tournament that the American sprinter Michael Johnson broke the world record for the 400-meter race.
Since its opening, the stadium has hosted many major sporting events, including national and international soccer matches, athletics tournaments and Davis Cup tennis matches.
The venue also stages rock and pop concerts by some of the biggest names in music. Among the stars who have entertained the crowds here are U2, Madonna and Bruce Springsteen.
Visitors can only go inside the stadium if they have tickets for an event. There are no public tours available. To keep up-to-date with what’s going on and when, visit the stadium’s official website.
