London 2012 Olympics, one year to go: live

Excited for the Games? Getting involved today? Or are you bah-humbugging? Send us your views at

There are 366 days to go until the London Olympics 2012, and this is going to be one of the busiest. We'll keep you up to date with all that's going on

09.45 Here's an interesting, and rather off-message, line from reigning Olympic 400m champion Christine Ohuruogu, who was born in Newham and has been speaking to young people in that part of town: "The general impression I get is that they are not really interested. They don't really see what is there for them. It is almost like it is for everybody else: people who are athletes, the sponsors, the older generations, all the ones who have money. I think that is a shame and there is more that needs to be done over the next year to make sure we include our all young people," she tells the BBC.

09.40 Jonathan Edwards watch: on BBC news talking about the Olympic Village. More Edwards news as it comes in.
