can't really judge the stadium until they finish the exterior (the wrap). Also it's going to be surrounded by little pods for food and merchandise.

See the white zig zag line around the stadium plaza, out side of this, there will be a raised wooden decking where 'Pods' selling juice, food, merchandise ect will be placed in small groups called 'Pod Villages' and a covered walkway will follow the zig zag all the way around the stadium.

Well, they said the stadium was "complete". I guess that didn't include the warp, I liked the old one better though.

If that is the wrap and finished article we get I will be very impressed! I think they've been very clever with the wrap colour there too. I was a little worried that, if the ribbon strips were all 'painted' in the rainbow colour it could look too tacky. It looks like they have done this, but left every other ribbon white, and the ones that are coloured look very dull (not in a bad way) faded and subtle. But keeping the coloured lights turned on in the day makes it as eye catching!

Love it

lighting is more than capable of giving the desired effect without the use of colour on the wrap. Has it actually got funding now?

The stadium was built well under budget so i'm sure they will be able to use the spare money on the wrap

London 2012 Olympics: International Paralympics Day moved to host city

International Paralympic Day will be hosted by London at Trafalgar Square in September to coincide with the beginning of the ticketing application process for the London 2012 Paralympics. The celebration, normally held in Germany every two years by the International Paralympic Committee, has been moved to London as part of its capacity as host nation.

Those members of the public visiting the Square on September 8 will have the chance to meet and join UK and international Paralympic athletes as well as taking up the opportunity to find out more about the 20 sports at the Games. Lord Sebastian Coe, Locog chair, said: 'I'm thrilled and honoured that we'll be hosting International Paralympic Day here in London in September.

"It's a fantastic way for the public to learn more about Paralympic sports and get a taster of the excitement that they will witness during the Paralympic Games in just over 500 days time." Ticket applications for the Games will open on September 9, 2011, while an announcement on prices and scheduling will be made in May.

Sir Philip Craven, President of the International Paralympic Committee added: "The last International Paralympic Day was held in Berlin in front of the Brandenburg Gate so it’s fantastic that this year the event will be held in another iconic location.

"International Paralympic Day will be the greatest showcase of Paralympic sport in the UK before the start of the Paralympic Games in 2012 and I’m delighted that London 2012 is hosting it.’

Brazil 2012 team to train at Palace

Brazil is to use the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre as its training base for the London 2012 Games. Up to 200 Brazilian competitors will use the south London facility before and during the Games under an agreement signed by Carlos Nuzman, President of both the Rio 2016 organising committee and the Brazilian Olympic Committee, and Crystal Palace operators GLL Sport Foundation.

He said: "Signing this historic agreement is a major step in the preparation plans for Team Brazil in 2012, while also laying the foundations for Brazil's planning for the 2016 Games.We are confident that Crystal Palace National Sports Centre will offer the best possible training and preparation environment for our athletes, enabling them to achieve the best possible sporting results."

"In addition, the sports centre will house all members of the Brazilian delegation not accredited to the Olympic Village such as doctors, assistant coaches and physiotherapists - forming the headquarters for Brazil during the London Games."

London Development Agency chief executive Peter Rogers said: "This is great news for London. By coming to Crystal Palace, Brazil's Olympians will enjoy some of the best sporting facilities in Britain as they prepare for London 2012. The London Development Agency has invested over £17 million bringing the National Sports Centre up to modern international standards. This investment is now being enjoyed by world class athletes and the local community alike."
