London delivers its Olympic blueprint

The final blueprint for London's bid to host the 2012 Olympic Games has been submitted by the capital's Olympic committee.

The organisation in charge of the Olympic proposal, London 2012, has sent its candidate file to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Switzerland. The 600-page document details every aspect of the bid in both English and French, the IOC's official languages.

London 2012 chairman Lord Coe said that delivering the plans marks a major milestone. "Our passion for sport is evident in the file and we believe that it will show how prepared London is to host the 2012 games," he added.

"The candidate file is the culmination of eight months of intensive work involving a unique combination of people from central and local government and industry and sector specialists. It has drawn in experts from around the world."

Meanwhile, an agreement was signed last week between London 2012 and leading environmental groups including WWF-UK and sustainable solutions expert BioRegional. The deal proposes to minimise waste and carbon emissions resulting from the games should the bid succeed.
