I helped construct the Olympic Site, tell the story of the Greatest Show on earth, and am on site for the Legacy build until 2014.

This is my View of what's going on. These Views are mine and not of my employer or the LLDC/ODA/LOCOG

I was one of the Official BT’s Storytellers for London 2012 .

Lee Valley White Water Centre - Legacy Mode - July 2013

So after finishing work at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park I had a drive to the Lee Valley White Water Rafting Centre to take some pictures. A mate of mine who worked with me during the Construction phase, Gareth Kelly is a keen Kayaker and all things water was having some fun, along with others using the facilities..

Hear personal accounts from those who attended and were involved in the Games, and see a selection of objects and costumes from London 2012, many on view for the first time since the close of the summer spectacular.

Recognisable items on display include Tom Daley’s 28” Union Jack swimming trunks, the yellow jersey which Bradley Wiggins wore in the opening ceremony, and an Olympic torch from the official relay.

You can also step back in time to the Opening and Closing ceremonies which are recorded with a display of costumes and accessories from Mary Poppins outfit to the dramatic punk heads from the Paralympic Opening ceremony.

In addition a display of protest material captures a full picture of London 2012, remembering the ‘unofficial’ Olympic stories.
