London 2012 well prepared for testing times ahead

The Organising Committee for the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games is confidently looking ahead to hosting a string of test events now that the final touches are being put on a number of Olympic venues throughout the city, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Coordination Commission reported.

This week, London is hosting the sportaccord Conference, which is a series of meetings and General Assemblies of the key organisations in sport.

The IWF is represented by Dr. Tamas Ajan, President, Mr. Ma Wenguang, General Secretary and Mr. Attila Adamfi, Competition Director.

London will play host to 42 sports events between now and the start of the Games on 27 July 2012, which will give organisers ample opportunity to test a maximum number of logistical and operational elements.
