Listeners to Radio 5 in the mornings will have heard the daily “Olympic Countdown”, a series of reports highlighting the problems that beset the organisers of the 2004 Olympic Games in Greece. I am happy to report that preparations in Kingsley for the 2016 Olympics are well ahead of schedule.
The 128,000 seater football stadium is nearing completion.
The Shot Putt area is also ready. Keen sited readers will note that the organisers have carefully positioned a greenhouse at the far end of the area, an incentive to the athletes to go for records. An example of the sort of initiative that sets Kingsley apart.
