www.timesofearth.com Exactly two years from today and the world will be looking to London for the start of the Olympic Games on Friday 27 July 2012. And to mark the two years to go milestone, London 2012 organisers are calling on the UK public to start planning their games to ensure they don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime event. To celebrate the countdown, athletes and young people will today (27 July) join Organising Committee chair Seb Coe, Olympic Delivery Authority chairman John Armitt, Olympics Minister Rt Hon Hugh Robertson MP and Mayor of London Boris Johnson on the train from St Pancras International to Stratford International. The group will then take a tour of the Olympic Park and, for the first time, step inside venues to witness first hand the progress being made in construction. They will also walk across the main spectator bridge which will be the 'front door' to the Olympic Park in 2012, joined by 70 athletes. Later today, young athletes will join multi-Olympic medallist Michael Johnson running inside the Olympic Stadium on a specially laid track. Gold medal winning cyclist, Sir Chris Hoy, will welcome visitors to the 2012 velodrome and become the first person to cycling around the new track. Former NBA star John Amaechi will accompany young basketball players and shoot the first hoop inside the basketball arena. As London plays hosts to the high profile event, estate agents are anticipating a surge in demand for London rental properties. Home owners ...
