IN JUST 100 days' time, the 2012 Olympics will open in London - a spectacular start to the greatest show on earth. We want to share these fantastic Olympic and Paralympic games with the people of Australia, and that's why my message to you today is this: Welcome. These Games - and this summer - will be a proud moment for Britain. We will not only be staging what we're determined will be the best Olympics ever, but also celebrating the 60-year reign of her majesty the Queen. It's a very special time for our country and we want to share it with the people of Australia. I know Britain will be looking its best. We've built brilliant new venues - on time and within budget. We've got our city ready, our transport systems in place, and we are looking forward to welcoming the world. What will London 2012 offer? My view is that these Games are about two things. Yes, sport will be at the heart of this great competition. We will see world records broken, memories created and new friendships begun. But when the events are over, I am determined that these Olympics will go on changing lives for the better. This legacy is vital. When we won our bid, Jacques Rogge, the president of the International Olympic Committee, talked about the ''distinctive magic'' that the UK will breathe into the 2012 Games - and we've been making sure it happens. As the only city to be awarded the Olympics three times - 1908, 1948 and this year - we'll be holding the games in a great tradition. This summer athletes and visitors will find a whole new quarter of London around the Olympic Park, in the east of the city. It's been a powerhouse of regeneration, and when the Games are over it will be the site of new homes, business and jobs. We've used new methods of design and construction, using low-carbon technologies. And by investing in new sporting facilities and establishing a new ''School Games'' competition, we're inspiring new generations of young people to experience the joys and benefits of sport. But the legacy of London 2012 is not limited to Britain. The International Inspiration program is creating opportunities for more than 12 million people in 20 countries. Not only is it allowing more young people to enjoy sport today, but it is also helping to change the way these countries promote sport in schools and across society for the long term. So I want these Games to be about more than just welcoming athletes to London for a single event. We want to build new and lasting links between Australia and Britain. If you are a student or academic, it is a chance to find out more about a country that has four of the top 10 universities in the world. If you are an entrepreneur, London 2012 is a chance to discover opportunities. And if you are a tourist, it is a chance to experience Britain's unique blend of the old and the new - the history and heritage alongside the cutting-edge culture of our music, art, theatre and fashion. Great sport. Great business. Great culture. Hosting the Games is a tremendous honour. We want to make it a great moment for Britain, and we are looking forward to welcoming the world to be part of it. This story Administrator ready to work first appeared on Nanjing Night Net.
