LONDON 2012: IOC Concludes Successful Project Review

An IOC delegation, led by IOC Coordination Commission Chairman Denis Oswald, today completed a one-day Project Review of the London 2012 Olympic Games. The group, made up of members of the IOC administration and IOC experts, received updates on the progress of the London Organising Committee (LOCOG)’s work since the Commission was last in London in April this year.
Assess The Progress
The IOC group spent the day at LOCOG’s Canary Wharf headquarters looking at the work done by the London team in a number of Games-related areas including sport, venues, transport, environment, marketing, technology and workforce. These reports, given by the London 2012 management team, allow the Chairman and the other members of the IOC delegation to assess the progress being made by London 2012, as well as allowing them to offer LOCOG their guidance in between full Coordination Commission visits.
Executive Project Review
Project reviews allow the Chairmen of the different IOC Coordination Commissions, along with members of the IOC administration and, where necessary, other members of the Coordination Commissions and IOC experts, to be updated on their respective Olympic Games projects in between the full visits of the Coordination Commission. The full Commission visits once a year until four years before the Games and then twice a year until the Games.
London was elected as the Host City for the Games of the XXX Olympiad on 6 July 2005 at the 117th IOC Session in Singapore. London eventually succeeded in the fourth round of voting taking 54 votes from a possible 104. London faced stiff opposition during the vote from the other four candidate cities: Paris, New York, Moscow and Madrid. There will be 26 sports on the Olympic programme in London in 2012 and around 10,500 athletes.
