London 2012 Olympic Games

July 27, 2012

London 2012 Olympic Games

Imperial College London will be hosting the Japanese Olympic Team at our South Kensington campus in 2012, providing accommodation in Prince’s Gardens in addition to providing general access to sports facilities and sports injury treatments in Ethos. Japanese athletes will be able to use the sports hall as their practice venue and further training opportunities for other sports and further facility use are now being explored.

Imperial’s association with the Japanese Olympic Committee was brought about through partnership with Loughborough University, where the Japanese Olympic team will be holding their pre-Games training camp before coming to Imperial shortly before the start of the Games.

The College’s association with the 2012 Olympics has been growing steadily. Imperial was also selected by the London Olympic Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) to provide seventy-five volunteers to assist with two Olympic sports – handball and wrestling – and one Paralympic sport, boccia.
