Banadir Stadium – Mogadishu, Somalia

Banadir StadiumThe track today is found in Somalia, the last country on the main continent of Africa in this series of track facilities.  It is a dirt track that is located inside Banadir Stadium.  Originally built in 1956, the stadium was recently renovated just a few years ago in 2009.  This photo was taken before that though, because artificial turf was installed in the infield.  Based on other pictures that I was able to find though, it seems that the track surface and the stands have remained the same.
