Ordinary Londoners - No 9 in a series

Game on! Courtesy of London Open House I was among the first to go on a tour of the 2012 Olympics site, and I had the privilige of meeting Daley Thomson, Olympic gold athlete and all round good guy. He has associated himself with these games from the very beginning and has put his efforts into helping sport at the grass roots. This is a Londoner we can all be proud of.

I'd like to take this opportunity to say a few words to those who don't think these games are a good thing, First, consider whether your view makes you the sort of person who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. Then consider the simple fact: when the games are over and done with, you really are going to look very silly. Nothing personal, but I'm sorry, it's true.

Mr Geezer has been doing some stirling Open House coverage, my small contribution is tomorrow.

Now that's no ordinary Londoner. First man to win back-to-back decathlons at successive Olympic Games.
