The Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, said his primary motivation for initiating and lobbying for the city’s bid was to develop the east end of London, neglected for over thirty years.
The Games also make use of many venues which were already in place before the bid.
The 2012 Summer Olympic Games, officially the Games of the XXX Olympiad, also known informally as London 2012 (for example on the official logo), are scheduled to take place in London, United Kingdom, from 27 July to 12 August 2012.
Following a bid headed by former Olympic champion Sebastian Coe and the then Mayor of London Ken Livingstone, London was selected as the host city on 6 July 2005 during the 117th IOC Session in Singapore, defeating Moscow, New York City, Madrid and Paris.
