Pre-Games Training Camps

11:54 PM

The 2012 London Olympics Committee Chair Sebastian Coe revealed that over 2000 Pre-Games Training Camps (PTGC) Agreements have been signed throughout the United Kingdom. See below for information about these Camps from what was written in the Press Release:


The camps are arranged through formal agreements between facilities in the UK and National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) and international teams. The camps provide athletes with a base where they can prepare, train and acclimatise ahead of the Games.
The London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) is providing some financial assistance to some NOCs, while others have made their own arrangements.
Speaking at the Association of National Olympic Committees meeting in Moscow, Seb commented: 'I am delighted that 93 NOCs have signed up to use so many different locations. Over 50% of them have 10 athletes or less and we want to give as much assistance as we can to these smaller teams.
'Training camps are an essential part of an athlete’s preparation for the London 2012 Games. Each facility will provide excellent facilities and a vital service to ensure athletes can prepare properly for the biggest sporting events of their lives. The Games is about engaging and inspiring young people and I urge teams to go out and meet their local communities when they come to train.  I know they will get a warm welcome.'
