Sport and the needs of athletes are central to London's plans for the Games, and I know that Jonathan will continue to represent these views energetically.
Jim Sloman and his team can help us deliver those goals and I am delighted that they will be working with our excellent in-house team to search for improvements wherever they can be found. Our aim is to put sport and the athletes right at the heart of the bid.
Our vision is to present to the world, in 2012, the best Games ever, for athletes, for the Olympic family, for spectators.
A week's work now is worth four down the collective path. Our plan over the next 18 months will have this in mind.
