London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Legacy and Sport

Giant Olympic rings unveiled



Londoners and visitors travelling through St Pancras International station on 3 March witnessed the spectacular unveiling of the first set of giant Olympic Rings, marking the first step in using the Olympic symbols on iconic landmarks to transform the capital into the Host City of the London 2012 Games.


Seb Coe, Chair of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, London 2012 Olympic mascot Wenlock, children from Christ Church Primary School in the London Borough of Camden and I revealed the stunning display at a special event in the station.


Built in Hitchin, Hertfordshire over 4 weeks by a team of 25 people, the aluminium Rings measure 20 metres wide by 9 metres high and weigh 2,300 kilograms. They were transported by lorry in 39 separate parts to St Pancras International station, where they were secretly assembled and installed over seven nights. The Olympic Rings are suspended from the roof of the Barlow Train Shed at St Pancras International.


The Olympic Rings are one of the world's most recognisable logos. The five Rings – coloured blue, yellow, black, green and red – represent the five continents and are interlaced to show the meeting of the world's athletes during the Olympic Games.

Global promoter appointed to spread 2012 experience




On 25 February, the Royal Parks, Tower Hamlets Council and I appointed international event promoter Live Nation Music UK as the event organiser and promoter of London's four 'Festival Live Sites' during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Live Sites planned for Hyde Park, Victoria Park, Trafalgar Square and Potters Fields Park (next to City Hall) will enable Londoners and visitors to come together to experience and celebrate the excitement of the Games on large outdoor screens.


A unique programme of free entertainment will be provided on the sites during the Olympic and Paralympic Games including, concerts, cultural and artistic performances and exhibitions to showcase London and the UK to the world.


With no cost to the public purse, the Royal Parks, Tower Hamlets and I will grant commercial rights to Live Nation allowing them to stage concerts and offer hospitality packages, food and drink concessions and merchandising opportunities.


UEFA Champions League final


Football legend Gary Lineker, former England and Chelsea player Graeme Le Saux, women’s England coach Hope Powell and my Transport Advisor, Kulveer Ranger, joined forces at City Hall on 17 February ahead of tickets for the UEFA Champions League men’s final going on sale.


Guests were the first to hear the news that London will play host to a free eight-day UEFA Champions Festival in Hyde Park in the run up to both the women’s and men’s finals at the end of May.


With just over 90 days to go until the build up to the final and the beginning of the UEFA Champions Festival, the design of UEFA ticket was unveiled as it was unfurled by abseil down the façade of City Hall.


The free Hyde Park festival, created by UEFA with the support of its key sponsors, including brands such as Sony, Playstation and Ford, and run in association with the Mayor of London, will offer something for all the family. The football-related festival will run from 21 May, through to the men’s final at Wembley on 28 May. The festival site will consist of live football areas, five aside tournaments and master classes, alongside a wide range of entertainment and bars, plus a dedicated UEFA travelling museum which will give fans an opportunity to get close to the UEFA Champions Trophy; all in all making Hyde Park the ultimate football fan’s destination.
