London is ready for the games

London will make history by being the only city to have hosted the Olympic Games on tree occasions.
The first time was 104 years ago in 1908 .
In that time , Britain could only be reached by ship .
Now we have the Chunnel and London is just more that hour away from mayor European cities.
Britain is as excited now as a century ago in 1908 when it welcomed 2,035 competitors from 22 nations to compete in the Olympic Games .
In 2012 will approximately 11,000 competitors from 204 nations descend on London grounds from July 27 to August 12 to compete in 26 sports .
(In 1948 the second London Games was 4,099 athletes from 59 nations.)

The Olympic Park itself is in Stratford , on what until recently was 2.5km square of industrial wasteland .
It's only right that east London is benefiting from the 2012 Games.
In 109 the stadium was constructed in White City , in the west of London , and the centrepiece of the 1948 Games was Wembley Stadium to the north-west .
The 80.000-seated Olympic Stadium is 78m at its highest point , with low-carbon concrete used in it construction , in keeping with London's commitment to sustainability.
Near the Stadium is the Velodrome and the Aquatics center .
Within walking distance of all venues is the Olympic Villages et along with shops , restaurants and leisure facilities.
The recently opened new Westfield shopping is now often visited by many Londoners and visitors to the games.
The train-underground station Stratford is just at the Olympic Ground with connections to Underground, Overground , DLR and local trains .
