Jacques Rogge Hails London Olympics As 'Very Good Games'
Published August 9, 2012
COE SAYS THANKS: The PA's Ellen Branagh wrote that LOCOG Chair Sebastian Coe said the armed forces and their involvement in the London Games has been one of the “defining features” of the Olympics. Coe visited Hainault temporary camp in Essex along with Chief of the Defence Staff General David Richards to give a "heartfelt thank you" to troops who are helping provide security at the Games. Coe said, "The reason I'm here is really out of gratitude, to thank those guys for stepping in, admittedly quite late in the day and also to thank their families who I know have possibly had some of their summer plans disrupted." Coe added, "They've discharged their duties with professionalism, with humour, and with grace, and that has really gone noticed in pretty much every corner of this project" (PA, 8/8).
