Queen to annouce Olympics open

The Queen has confirmed she will join the Duke of Edinburgh in opening London 2012 at the Olympic Stadium on July 27.

With less than 150 days until the start of the Games, the Queen unveiled the final plaque in a 60km walking and cycling Jubilee Greenway route that surrounds the Olympic Park on Wednesday.

On Wednesday it was also confirmed Her Majesty will open the Paralympics on August 29, again alongside Prince Philip. It will be the second time she has opened the Olympics - she opened the 1976 Games in Montreal - and the first time she has opened a Paralympics.

London 2012 chairman Lord Coe said: "This summer we will be hosting the largest Paralympic Games ever and the opening ceremony on August 29 will be a fantastic event.

"The Paralympic Games will undoubtedly be a time of extraordinary pride for our nation, and it is fitting that Her Majesty will declare us under way."

International Paralympic Committee president Sir Philip Craven added: "I am delighted that Her Majesty the Queen will be opening the Paralympic Games, further underlining the significance and status of these Games, not just to the Commonwealth but to the whole world."

The 2012 opening ceremony is being orchestrated by artistic director Danny Boyle, while it is yet to be decided who will light the Olympic flame.

Far nicer indeed.

I usually keep tabs on whats going on for the games and I just never saw anything about it. Thanks for the link. I think I'll venture to the UK forum more frequently now.

Oh, it fits together a lot better! But that's not surprising. Massive gathering areas for all the ticket holders, big spaces for security checks. big spaces for temporary seating etc. all take up a lot of room. That video also has the housing developments that will be created post-Games in it. It'll be a good few years before it all looks like that. The big area of low-rise housing next to the velodrome (where the temporary basketball arena is at the moment) will be the first plot to be developed.

Nice design!

it is amazing how sports can join people over the country. Besides sport itself, turism, hospitality and of course construction. Nice post!
