Moving north today to Uzbekistan, to find today’s track at Pakhtakor Markaziy Stadium. This is the largest stadium in the country, and of course mostly used for soccer. Built in 1956, the facility was renovated in 1996. It looks like a nice facility with the blue and yellow seats, and the nice blue track surface. However, I’ve not quite sure is going on with the track surface in both of these pictures. It’s hard to tell if it was being cleaned (unsuccessfully) or damaged.
