Loughborough University has been selected by the British Olympic Association (BOA) as The Official Preparation Camp Headquarters for Team GB prior to the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The agreement, announced today (Wednesday 14 April), means many of Team GB’s sports disciplines are expected to use Loughborough’s facilities for their pre-Games training.
It is also intended that all members of Team GB will pass through Loughborough University for the official ‘kitting out’ process. This will provide the essential opportunity to bring together the hundreds of athletes and officials into one collective unit and mentally prepare the whole of Team GB for competition at the largest scale multi-sports environment in the world.
