Sebastian Coe, chairman of the organising committee for the 2012 London Olympics, spoke about the responsibility of hosting 2012 Games:
"It is a massive responsibility.
We don't find it daunting.
I think that I can only relate it to sitting in a stadium when I was a competitor watching an outstanding performance in my own event. I didn't feel cowed by it. I went out and wanted to emulate it or even do better.
Beijing has delivered a spectacular games and we will also deliver a spectacular games."
Will they be on budget though?
