Lord's to host archery
Organizers say Lord's cricket ground has been granted permission to begin making changes for the archery competition at the 2012 Olympics.
Temporary facilities and structures such as a range and seating for 5,000 spectators can now be installed at the famous ground. Archery will be held for a week at Lord's during the London Games, and Monday's decision on preparations was largely a formality.
London Organizing Committee chairman Sebastien Coe calls Lord's a “world-class venue” that will provide a “spectacular and innovative setting.”
