Olympic victory parade confirmed for September 10th
A victory parade for Team GB’s Olympic and Paralympic heroes will take place in London on September 10th.
Bbc.co.uk report that the parade is expected to pass through the City of London from the Guildhall to The Mall, although the official route is yet to be confirmed.
The event is expected to attract hundreds of thousands of Brits into the capital, who will help Britain’s successful athletes celebrate their performance at The Olympics. It arguably provides the perfect opportunity for those who didn’t manage to get tickets to any Olympic events to get involved in the Games.
Team GB is already just two gold medals away from breaking the all-time national Olympic record – so the athletes and supporters could well keep the celebrations going long into the night at some of the party venues London has to offer.
Shortly after the announcement, London 2012 chairman Lord Seb Coe paid tribute to the British public for the incredible support offered to Britain’s athletes throughout The Games so far.
He told guardian.co.uk: “My message is a massive thank you to the people of this country. Am I surprised? Probably not. Is it one of the most extraordinary things I’ve seen in my lifetime? Yes, it is.”
