In the 1800's till the early 20th century, Cardiff was well known for being the biggest exporter of Welsh coal and its ports being one of the busiest in the world.
Now, with Welsh coal not being in high demand, some disused docks are being trasformed to make way for new villages and sporting arenas to help support the London 2012 Olympic games and help Cardiff become known as a sporting capital as well as a seaside town. In 2009, over 61% of Cardiff's population played sport regularly and the city was awarded the European City of Sport award.
