The London 2012 Aquatics Centre is (almost) ready


The Brits celebrated the completion of the London 2012 Aquatics Centre already in July, with one year to go until til London 2012 Olympics. The pictures are certainly impressive, but I won’t rest easy until there are some Omega OSB11 starting blocks at each end :-)

Here is Tom Daley performing the first official dive. Classy comment from Olympic medalist Leon Taylor: “As Tom were saying, he’s so exciting … so excited to dive here”.

Later there was this fun race with Olympic celebrities like Duncan Goodhew and Mark Foster. A bit of a mess with mixed strokes, ages and sexes, a foghorn as starting pistol and no starting blocks, but fun anyhow.
