Swindon Olympics 2012 - Back The Bid

Lord Seb Coe visited Swindon today to try and make the rest of the UK feel less left out of the mostly London 2012 Olympic Games.

He said people didn't realise quite how close Swindon is to London. Clearly, Brunel must have known, when placing the works here, just how far it was from London.

Councillors lapped up the visit of a celeb to the town, just the sort of thing that makes them for a change feel like they're involved in national politics and events.

Swindon Centric Says ; Unless the East side of Swindon is marked out with white paint as the far end of the long-jump sandpit, the link Swindon will have to the 2012 games will be the people travelling to see it in the capital. Get ready Great Western, book your seat now Olympic rail-goers!
