It's the Olympics, it's supposed to look different.

Anyway, it's never going to happen again for another 50+ years, so chill.

Nothing they could do - normally they have all year to get it ready, and it still rips up. This time they had three weeks.

Quoting one of the groundsmen (not verbatim, by memory): "Young grass has a weaker root system, this is the best it could be."

ie so soon after Wim, it was inevitable it would turn into Dustbledon by the end of the week.
