With the London 2012 Olympics getting closer by the day, excitement and fervour over the games continues to grow from the general public. Throughout the summer when this prestigious sporting event finally arrives, a large number of carefully chosen Londoners will aid and assist the many thousands of visitors to London and act as ambassadors for this great city. Promoting the city to the world when London is on display this summer, the London ambassadors will showcase everything the fine capital city has to offer and they will be a key factor in ensuring the games run as smoothly as possible.
To be the part, you must also look the part, and with this, the role of Olympic ambassador comes with it the necessity of an identifiable and iconic uniform. On Friday 16th March 2012, it was with great pleasure that London mayor Boris Johnson could reveal the new uniform for the London ambassador team, showcasing to the press and public what his team of ambassadors will be wearing whilst representing London at the 2012 Olympic games this summer.
