King hopes Olympics will bing investment to Barn Elms
following announcement of London as host city for 2012
Stuart King the Deputy Leader of Labour in Wandsworth has reacted to London's successful Olympic bid describing it as a fantastic opportunity both for London and sport in Wandsworth borough.
He said, "The London Olympics will help support the growth
and development of sports clubs in the borough including the Belgrave
Harriers, Herne Hill Harriers, as well as rowing, gymnastics, martial
arts, swimming, table tennis and many other clubs. It also presents an
opportunity to develop and promote disability and Paralympic sport in
relevant schools and at the Douglas Bader Centre. I also hope that our
sports centre at Barn Elms will benefit from an investment in capital,
as it would be an excellent location to host a team training site."
