A good reception for the Olympics

An enjoyable reception by the 2012 team last night, with appearances by a number of the summer's medal winners, interviewed by Jonathan Edwards- who opened by asking one poor Olympian whether she was disappointed with her bronze! Tactful. Seb Coe also said a few words, before being surprised by the appearance of a birthday cake and a rousing chorus of 'Happy Birthday' after it was revealed he was turning 52 that very day. I managed to have a useful discussion with a senior LOCOG official about the continuing controversy over Greenwich Park and Woolwich barracks. I'm pleased to hear they are taking the issue seriously, but remain absolutely committed to holding the events in the Borough.
