Debbie Jevans said: ‘This multi-sport venue is one of the most important and exciting Olympic venues and will be a hub of sporting activity at Games time, accommodating seven sports during the Olympic Games and six during the Paralympics, second only to the Olympic Park.
‘The task of hosting so many sports in one venue was put to the test, delivering seven international sporting events over three consecutive weeks, and I’m pleased with the outcomes. We learnt some lessons that will further inform our operational planning for the Games.’
The Fencing event saw Great Britain come away with gold in the Team Foil. Richard Kruse, Laurence Halsted, James Kenber and Ed Jefferies beat China 44-43, France 45-25 and then the Russians 45-34.
