The 2012 London Olympics, or as it is officially called ,“The Games of the XXX Olympiad” are fast approaching. Despite the usual challenging security and budget concerns, Britain promises to make it’s “third” time hosting the games the biggest and best yet!
While Londoners get ready to welcome athletes from 205 countries around the world, we thought we would take the opportunity to have a look at some of the exciting Olympic venues that will greet them.
The 2012 games will use a mixture of new venues, existing facilities and historic locations & structures, some of them in well-known locations such as Hyde Park and Horse Guards Parade. Most of the venues have been divided into three zones, the Olympic Zone, the River Zone and the Central Zone but by necessity, some venues are outside the boundaries of Greater London, such as the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy in Dorset which will host the sailing events. The popular football tournaments will be staged at several grounds around the UK.
The 2012 Summer Olympic Games will be held in London from July 27th to August 12th followed by the 2012 Paralympic Games from August 29th to September 9th. Here is a full schedule of events.
