whole Stadium, seeing how far it's got along.
Chris Holmes, Director of Paralympic Integration, London 2012: There's a piece of this Paralympic
project, some Paralympic magic that everybody can get a part of. Now it's over to the public
to say, 'How do you want to be a part of this?' If you want to have a ticket to the Games,
sign up!
Eddie Izzard: What we need is volunteers, Games Makers!
Jonathan Edwards, Olympian: We're looking for 70,000 of them for London and they will
make the difference between a good Games and a great Games.
Sir Chris Hoy, Olympian: Have you got what it takes to be a Game Maker?
Jude Law, actor: The London 2012 Olympics is a real opportunity for not just the capital
but the nation to come together.

different countries around the world that do do sport like we do.
Seb Coe, LOCOG Chair: We're delighted this morning to be able to launch the first six
of our training venues.
Gail Emms, Olympian: It is so important to have world class facilities when you're training
for something like the Olympic Games and Redbridge is certainly that. It's fantastic!

enjoy doing this and I'm extremely excited about it.
Ian Thorpe, Olympian: It is wonderful to see how complete it is.
Rebecca Adlington, Olympian: To say we've still got another two years to go it's just
unbelievable.

where the action is taking place, and I think that's something that we've got really right
in London.
Seb Coe, LOCOG Chair: Naturally a lot of people around the UK are a little surprised we have
a Mountain Bike course in the flattest county in the country, so we've got a great surprise
for them today.
Jason Fergus, Head of 2012 Legacy: I'm really excited about it. Can't wait to get my ticket!

is almost, to use a phrase, for us to 'stretch the envelope': to have a small number of very
costly tickets at one end...
Paul Deighton, LOCOG Chief Executive: ...And at the other end of the spectrum we've got
probably the cheapest priced Opening Ceremony tickets for some time, 20 pounds and 12 pence.
Austin Healy, rugby international: I've signed up, have you?
