The London Olympics were a rousing success and not only because of the impressive medal haul Team BG was able to attain on home soil. With a magnificent 29 Gold medals and 65 medals in total Great Britain had more than a few heroes including Jess Ennis, Mo Farah and Bradley Wiggins to mention a few.
All through the games we heard about the legacy which seems to be a major focus and with so many younger people taking to different Olympic sports following the games it looks like Team, GB has a bright future ahead of it.
Millions of pounds went into improving infrastructures around London and sporting arenas also had the opportunity to improve.
The games brought with them thousands of athletes, coaches, delegates and supporters who swelled London’s already busy streets.
The tourist trade in London is huge and London’s entertainment value is widely respected with great theater and arts projects among others. The capital also sees a lot of medical tourists travelling to the world class private medical professionals on Harley Street including the LOC private oncology specialists who can boast some of the best specialists in the world including Consultant Paul Ross and specialists that offer state of the art treatments and can help with difficult questions like what oncology care is best, What is Kaposis Sarcoma and more.
London hoteliers and those in the surrounding areas also saw a huge boost to business with people travelling from all across the world to be a part of the magical atmosphere.
As with any major tournament or event there will also be increased security fears but there were no incidents and the security did not encroach into any of the great atmosphere from the opening to the closing ceremonies.
After the great success of London 2012 we can’t wait to see how we perform at the next Olympics which will be held next year in Brazil’s Rio. It might be too soon to see the ‘London Legacy’ produce the next crop of stars but hopefully with the more experienced athletes still having a few years left in them and the break through stars having a long career ahead of them it should be good. Who knows, we might even surpass the impressive medal tally from 2012.
