6. To ask the Minister for the Olympics what assessment she has made of the effectiveness of the contribution of the British Olympic Association to preparations for the 2012 Olympic Games. (172194)

The British Olympic Association plays a key role in the preparations for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games.

The BOA is a member of the London organising committee, and its chairman, Lord Moynihan, is a member of the Olympic Board—the body responsible for overseeing the successful delivery of the games in 2012 and ensuring the games leave a lasting sporting and social legacy.

The BOA is also responsible for selecting and leading Team GB. It provides support to Britain’s Olympic athletes and works closely with national governing bodies and UK Sport to ensure the success of British athletes in 2012.
