What a great summer for UK sport; and our very own Lynn Davies CBE was at the heart of it.  Pictured with other Olympic legends Lynn played a key role at the stunning opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games, which he believes will go down as one of the greatest ever.

Affectionately known as “Lynn the Leap”, the president of UK Athletics commented: “This is my ninth Olympic Games and by far and away it’s the best I’ve ever been to in virtually every sense. The organisation has been absolutely brilliant and the volunteers who have come here and given their services free have made it a huge success.

“We’ve got a great debt of gratitude to the Army because 18,000 soldiers stepped in at the last minutes and made it safe and secure.

“Right from the opening ceremony, which I was delighted to take part in, it set the tone for these Games. When you walk around the park outside the stadium at night, there’s just a buzz about the place and there’s a feel-good factor.

 “The Olympic Games have made everyone in this country feel very, very proud to be British.”

 Lynn works with us as a specialist advisor to help us understand and satisfy the unique construction requirements of sporting facilities and stadia.
