NAO gives 2012 Games a glowing report

The Mayor of London Boris Johnson has today welcomed a top-level independent report to Parliament by the National Audit Office, which confirms the widely acknowledged successes of London's 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and calls for a sustained effort to deliver a lasting legacy from the capital's summer of sport.

The NAO's post-Games review names the army of Olympic volunteers, including the Mayor's 8,000 Team London Ambassadors, as crucial to the successful staging of the Games, and praises organisers LOCOG and Transport for London for overcoming a huge logistical challenge to keep the capital moving.

The Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: "The overwhelming success of the 2012 Games, from our unfaltering transport system to the enthusiasm of our army of volunteers, is undeniable. We delivered the best Games ever on time and considerably under budget.

"The doomsters and Olymposceptics have been confounded yet again. This report puts into black and white the scale of the achievement in organising such a successful festival of sport, and pays tribute to the many different players who helped make the Games the greatest show on earth.

"I'm determined to build on this momentum to create a lasting legacy which benefits Londoners for generations and provides a blueprint for future host cities to follow."
