FOR SALE: In London, Simon Hart writes finding an "effective post-2012 use" for the stadium will be "one of the key things the Games will be judged on but there is now little hope of attracting an anchor tenant." English Football League One club Leyton Orient and Guiness Premiership rugby clubs Saracens and Wasps reportedly have withdrawn their interest in relocating to the stadium, which instead will "host international and domestic athletics meetings as well as grass-roots sports and other events such as music concerts" (London TELEGRAPH, 2/11).
