Video: A Tour Around The Olympic Park

In this video released by London 2012, Jonathan Edwards, Olympic gold medallist and holder of the world record for men's triple jump (18.29m if you were wondering) has a wander around the Olympic Park to mark 200 days until the opening ceremony; the moment passed yesterday, in case you missed all the celebrations.

The "uplifting" music and corporate-video overtones are a bit difficult to stomach, but there's some excellent footage of the park from the air and on the ground. The swooping shots around the curvaceous interior of the Aquatic Centre are particularly impressive, as are the glimpses of the parklands that will surround the various arenas. It's also a useful primer if you're yet to get your head around the park's geography.
