The cost of the village is expected to be around GBP 1billion. Team officials of some countries have already seen the village and have checked in too. Boris Johnson, Mayor of London in this AFP video says, “We have done everything in power to welcome greatest athletes in the world, make them feel at home, here in London.” Various kinds of facilities would also be available to the athletes such as hair care, nails would be done and other forms of entertainment such as pool table has also been arranged to relax the players.
A great deal of attention is always given to the dining hall, as it is very important for the athletes to get their required diet 24/7 of the best quality. The seating arrangements are spacious, and have got a very colourful look to it as well. Various kinds of cuisines would be available starting from English diet, Caribbean, African etc. It also includes McDonald's. Nigel Garfitt, Director, Villages and Games services in the AFP video says, “It (Dining hall) is pretty huge. So we can seat 5000 people at one time. We will serve something in excess of 1.2 million meals over the course of the Games.”
So with this village being unveiled, basically everything is ready for the games, the organisers are just waiting for the Games to start and bring laurels to the nation for being one of the best Olympic hosts. For that we have to wait and watch, if they will be successful or not.
