London Olympics: Lord's Cricket GroundEvent: Archery

If cricket was an Olympic sport, then Team GB would certainly be favourites for the gold medal. As it is, the spiritual "home of cricket" will be used for the London 2012 Archery competition. Located to the west of Regent's Park at St John's Wood, Lord's Cricket Ground is the perfect choice as venue for a sport even more traditional than cricket. Archery dates back around 10,000 years for hunting and warfare purposes - but seeing that it was in medieval England that archery developed as a competitive activity, we could say that Archery - like "ping pong" - is coming home in the summer of 2012. For the Games, the Archery competition - which will include four medal events played out between Friday 27 July and Friday 3 August - will connect the old with the new at Lord's: during the knockout phase, archers will shoot from in front of the Victorian pavilion across the hallowed cricket square towards the modern white pod of the state-of-the-art Media Centre, which presides over the ground like a UFO. The only flying objects whizzing through the air will be arrows, shot towards the gold centre of the colourful targets from a distance of 70 metres.
