China National Radio described the stadium as having "rectangular tracks" around its soccer pitch.
"It is difficult to turn and easy to fall," local resident Gong Xiaona told provincial television program Newsnight.
The program quoted a stadium staffer as saying that the previous track was worn down by use.
"The current tracks were laid in a rush to deal with the visit by some provincial leaders," he said. "We ourselves feel it's ugly, but who can change it if our bosses don't care?"
Maybe they should have literally cut some corners...
