Olympic champion Jessica Ennis has made a last-ditch appeal to save the stadium where she was discovered as a teenager and still trains.
Councillors are expected to approve the closure of the Don Valley Stadium at a meeting later today.
Ennis said: "I've got some amazing memories, starting my athletic career there and having that iconic stadium in my home city is incredible.
"To lose that would be such a shame for future athletes coming through, so I hope that the right decision's made and we can find a way to keep it."
