Right from the start, legacy - with a very clear focus of totally transforming the East End of London - was fundamental to London 2012's plan. The theme of London 2012 was "Inspire a Generation" and this transformation was built around a Games that created opportunities across sport, education, culture, volunteering and sustainability. The London Games took place in some remarkable new venues. But just like the Richmond Oval in Vancouver, they haven’t simply been built for Games-time impact, but for legacy as well. And afterwards, they’ll be modified to meet the needs of the local communities and athletes long into the future.
