Dvorets Sporta – Nikel, Russia

Dvorets SportaI have a few more tracks to post that are found in the arctic circle.  Today’s comes from Russia, and is found in the northern city of Nikel.  The north latitude here is just over 69°.  This may be the northernmost track in the country.  I could find no information on this facility.  It clearly is a track made with cinder, gravel, or dirt.  The grass infield is used for soccer, which I’m guessing is the primary use of this stadium.  It looks like the field events use the D-zones.  Here is a photo gallery of the city, but the track is not shown.
