GB training camp in Cyprus

Interesting thing on the BBC 10 o'clock news tonight about the training camp that the British team have set up in Cyprus for the athletes to prepare for the games at. The facilities look really good and it makes you realise how seriously the Brits (and presumably the other big nations) take the Games. But then I guess however seriously they all take it, there's still only 3 medals for each event.

But perhaps the most interesting fact was that the locals have managed to build a full-size 50m pool from scratch in the last three months. If only the building in Athens had been done that quickly...
