The Olympics games Have Given UK A £10bn Boost

The Olympics games Have Given UK A £10bn Boost

The London 2012 Games gave a massive boost to the economy – but have failed to deliver a sporting legacy, a new report says.

The UK economy has received a massive trade and investment boost from the London Olympic and Paralympic Games, according to a new report.

It says additional export sales have brought in £5.9bn, while £1.5bn has come from firms winning new contracts and £2.5bn from new foreign investment.

The latter includes the redevelopment of London’s Battersea Power Station by a Malaysian consortium and projects involving the Chinese technology company Huawei. read more

Paralympic Flame To Go To New Heights

Paralympic Flame To Go To New Heights

As the countdown begins to the London 2012 Paralympic Games, the London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) has revealed details of how the Paralympic Flame will be created and the route it will take during the 24-hour Torch Relay.

During the 24 hour Paralympic Torch Relay, the five team members will each carry their own Torch, passing the Flame between one another, as they complete their section of the Relay. The Torch has been created to represent modernity and innovation, with a mirrored finish reflecting the light of the Flame and teams of Torchbearers that carry it.

On Wednesday 22 August, with just one week to go to the Games, four Flames will be lit at the summit of the highest peaks of the four UK nations on Wednesday 22 August.Groups of disabled and non-disabled Scouts will ascend Scafell Pike (England), Snowdon/Yr Wyddfa (Wales), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Slieve Donard (Northern Ireland) where they will use the traditional technique of rubbing flint to create sparks and kindle a flame.Sebastian Coe, Chair of LOCOG, said: ‘By creating the four Flames through human endeavour at the four highest peaks in the UK we will ensure that the spirit of each home nation is represented in the Paralympic Flame.’The Flames will then be transferred to each nation’s capital city where they will each become the focus for a day of Paralympic celebrations. On Tuesday 28 August the Flames will be united in Stoke Mandeville – the spiritual home of the Paralympic Movement – to create the London 2012 Paralympic Flame. read more
