A FORMER Olympic athlete came to Times Territory to check out two sporting venues hoping to provide training facilities for elite athletes ahead of the London 2012 Games.

Dean Greenaway, secretary-general of the British Virgin Islands Olympic organising committee, visited Hertfordshire Sports Village and Gosling Sports Park on Wednesday.

Mr Greenaway, who competed in the 400m at the 1984 Los Angeles Games, toured the facilities to see what they could offer his country's Olympic team, which will be using Hertfordshire as its base in the run up to 2012.

He also spoke exclusively to the WHT. Read his interview in next week's paper, out on Wednesday.
