Olympics Handover Celebration

I’m delighted by the impressive performance of Team GB in Beijing and I can’t wait to see many of these athletes compete on our doorstep in 2012. I’m especially proud of Christine Ohuruogu who studied at University College London at the same time as I did.

On Sunday (24 Aug) at approximately 2.30pm, as part of the Beijing closing ceremony, the Mayor of London will receive the Olympic flag from the Mayor of Beijing, officially marking London’s tenure as host city.

London 2012 will stage eight minutes of the closing ceremony, culminating of the handover of the flag.

To celebrate this, a variety of events are happening around the country and you can find out more here.
