Builders take the medals at London 2012
Last week I went to the Global Sports Infrastructure Conference 2005 at the Oval cricket ground in London, hosted by UK Trade and Investment. There were some impressive speakers in attendance and some great discussion points raised regarding the hosting of large scale events, in particular legacy issues.
Ironically, the best point raised all day was not a sporting one – when discussing legacy planning a delegate raised the point that perhaps the greatest legacy won’t be the venues, won’t be the gold medals and won’t be the health of the nation but in fact all the construction workers, builders, plumbers, electricians that the UK is currently so short of.
