London has hosted the Olympic Games on two past occasions, in 1908 and 1948, with a third scheduled for 2012. The planned 2012 Summer Olympics will make London the first city to have hosted the modern Games of three Olympiads. London is the only city in the United Kingdom to have ever hosted the Olympics; the United States is the only country to have hosted Summer Olympics on more occasions than the UK.
British participation in Olympic events, both as a competitor and as a host, is the responsibility of the British Olympic Association.
The stunning Copper Box arena will be packed with enthusiastic handball fans during the London 2012 Games, but once the medals have been awarded and the fans have gone home it is destined to play a key role as a community venue for London’s East End. Post-Games, the Copper Box will be known as the Multi-Use Arena. Around 90 per cent of its use will be dedicated to local communities with the cost of hiring a court the same as the average price of hiring one at a local leisure centre.
The Main Press Centre (MPC) for the Olympic Games was officially opened, marking exactly one month to go until the greatest show on earth. During the Games, around 5800 accredited members of the press and photographic media will have access to the action as it happens from this base in the Olympic Park.
