Final inspection to be held ahead of Olympics

THE International Olympic Committee’s final inspection for London 2012 takes place this week with president Jacques Rogge jetting in to meet Prime Minister, David Cameron.

Rogge arrives in London on Wednesday morning as the two-day inspection begins by the Committee’s co-ordination commission.

The IOC have no real worries over London and the inspection will be a chance for LOCOG (London 2012 Organising Committee) to give assurances that everything is on schedule.

The last programmes are being printed while there are plenty of tickets left for the Games’ football tournament, ahead of the Olympic opening ceremony on July 27.

British IOC member Sir Craig Reedie believes the co-ordination commission will find little to concern them.

He said: “I would expect the IOC co-ordination commission to check the final delivery systems for the various client groups, including sponsors, and I would be surprised if there was any question that London could not give a good answer to.

“Arrangements to date are as good as can be.”
