London Olympics

Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 24 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what locations in the East Midlands are being considered by her Department to serve as training sites for athletes for the 2012 Olympics. (96109)

The London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) is putting together a Pre Games Training Camp Guide in which facilities in the UK that have been selected as providing a suitable training environment are listed by location and by sport.

LOCOG have released details on their website, inviting expressions of interest from potential host facilities. Applications can be made on the London 2012 website: www.london2012.com/trainingcamps. Applications will initially be assessed locally with selection coordinated by the Nations and Regions Group Coordinator. A proposed list of facilities will then be submitted to LOCOG for final selection. This guide will be the primary means of informing National Olympic Committees (NOC) and National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) when choosing where to stage their pre-games preparation camps for 2012. The guide will be distributed to NOCs and NPCs in July 2008.
