100 days to go to the London 2012 Olympic Games

April 18, 2012 | By Gerard McGovern | News, Olympics, Sport

 An Olympics in your home town is something that comes around once in a lifetime. For me, that “once” is happening in 100 days (or 15 Fridays).

Not only am I proud to be a Londoner working at the Olympics, I am also proud to be part of a fantastic team of 125 people who will be covering the games and getting our photos to people across the globe.

We’ve been planning for London 2012 for over six years and to think we are down to 100 days is both a thrilling and scary prospect. Nearly all of our plans are finalised and we even begin building our office and cabling venues in just over a month. With 25 venues spread around the city, we need all that time before the opening ceremony on July 27.

See you in London!

    London has to be the most photogenic city in the whole world; a plethora of iconic buildings, transport and street furniture, a history rich in traditions, beautiful green open spaces…so looking forward to the Olympics and the images!
