I live roughly 30 minutes drive away from the London 2012 Olympic Park in Stratford. I've lived in the East End of London all of my life. I've been a forum member at Gamesbids since 2005.
London 2012 and Glasgow 2014 will prove a concrete turning point for sporting infastructure in Great Britain. The legacy will be significant, and the fruits of this legacy will create many great athletes for years to come.
Great Britain still has a long way to go to match the stadia and facilities of other nations. There can be no better foundation than the Olympics and Commonwealth Games to solidify this process.
