This week it was confirmed that Worldwide Olympic Partner Dow Chemical Company will be producing a sustainable, fabric 'wrap' that will encircle the Olympic Stadium during the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The wrap will be made up of 336 individual panels, each approximately 25 metres high and 2.5 metres wide.
Also this week the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, Arts Council England, the UK Arts Councils and the British Council awarded £700,000 of funding in the final round of Unlimited commissions. Unlimited is the ground-breaking Cultural Olympiad programme that celebrates arts and culture by disabled and deaf artists on an unprecedented scale. This image is of a piece titled 'Creating the Spectacle!' and is one of twelve commissions to benefit from the funding. The piece will present an ambitious series of performances of a self-propelled underwater wheelchair.
And finally, IAAF President Lamine Diack and LOCOG chairman Seb Coe are pictured visiting the London 2012 Olympic Stadium site in Stratford. They arrived at the Olympic Park on the high speed Javelin Train from London St Pancras.
