News, information and stories about the Olympic Games.

Monday, 20 December 2004


In rather a bizarre publicity stunt, organisers of the London bid for the 2012 Olympics have offered every child born today the chance to play a part in the 2012 Olympics; if London wins the right to host the event.

The children will be offered parts in the opening and closing ceremonies.

Monday was chosen as 2012 day, because it is the 20th day of the 12th month.

Lord Coe, bid leader, said:

"To mark 2012 Day we wanted to do something special which benefits the whole country and provides a legacy.."

The offer may be difficult to fulfill, if London wins, as there are on average 1,855 babies born each day in December in the UK.
