One year and counting

London is buzzing at the moment. Today marks exactly one year until the city hosts the next Summer Olympic Games. The city is filled with construction works as the tube and other facilities are made ready. Perhaps the most interesting of these is a new cable car that will cross the Thames between the giant O2 dome and the Excel conference centre on the river's northern bank.

Tonight, as I type, the mayor of London is unveiling the design of competition medals at a public ceremony in Trafalgar Square. Last night I wandered through the square as they were installing the glitzy presentation stage and two giant video screens. Nearby stood the countdown clock marking the remaining days and hours until the Opening Ceremony kicks off. The atmosphere in the square brought back many happy memories of Sydney's magnificent Games in September 2000.
