London mayor Ken Livingstone has committed himself to a bid to stage the 2012 Olympics. The plan would involve a new 80,000-seat Olympic stadium at Stratford in east London plus a 45ha athlete's village nearby. Other venues include Wimbledon for tennis and the London Arena for boxing. The International Olympic Committee decides on the venue for the 2012 games sometime in 2005.
