2012 Olympics

Asked if the Government had any sort of Medals target in mind for the 2012 Olympics, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that we were currently in 2006, our main objective for 2005 had been to secure the Olympics for London and that we had achieved. If we had any objective for 2012 it was to host a world class Olympic games that the nation could be proud of. Put to him that some Government sources had indicated that we were aiming to finish 4th in the Medals table and asked if that was not perhaps a little ambitious, the PMOS said that this sounded like a classic question for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s press office.
