LONDON 2012 organisers have unveiled the Greenwich-themed "jump zone" on the Olympic cross country course.
National and London landmarks will be the inspiration for the areas around the 40 jumps on the course, known as jump zones, and local school kids were last year invited to come up with designs for a Greenwich-themed jump zone.
Successful designs came from students at Joan Roan School, Alderwood Primary School, Timbercroft Primary School and Invicta Primary School. The plans were then turned into a plywood backdrop by students at Ravensbourne College and shown off for the first time this morning.
Double Olympic champion, Jonathan Edwards, said the sculpture was "brilliant" and offered a "super view" with Canary Wharf in the background behind it.
Course designer Sue Benson told Greenwich.co.uk that the cross country course was "beyond my dreams."
"It's been brought together beautifully," she added. "There's masses of decoration to put in but the fences are all in their correct sites and they've all been measured to legal height. I'm really comfortable with it."
The cross country event will take place on July 30th.
London 2012 chairman Seb Coe told journalists this morning that parts of Greenwich Park had been left "waterlogged" by recent rain.
