A multifunctional sports center suitable for practice facilities and for organizing national and international competitions in basketball, volleyball, handball, football, track and field athletics, gymnastics, wrestling, and other sports.

The Elektrum Olympic Centre boasts the largest and most contemporary swimming pool complex in Riga. Besides the large Olympic-size pool of 50 m in length (6 swimming lines, 1.30-2.30m deep), there are two smaller pools, 10 m long each (1.0-1.4m deep), which are used for water workouts and swimming lessons for children who are at least 6 months old. There is also a spacious relaxation area with 4 different kinds of saunas and baths (a bio-sauna with a salt wall, a sauna, a steam room, a bath of sensations), a tropical shower and a playground “Rotaļupe” for children up to 11 years of age.
The place where once there was a hippodrome, now is a home for sports and various public events. This is where the 2006 NATO summit took place. The participants of Lattelekom Riga Marathon gather here every year to receive their race numbers. This has also been a meeting point for the participants of the World Choir Olympics and the Song and Dance Festival.More
