Paul Blanchard, CEO of Surrey Sports Park, said: “Surrey Sports Park is honoured to welcome such an important member of not only the IOC but also the committee that awarded London the Olympic Games back in 2005. Couple this with the range of teams and athletes that we are hosting and we have a fantastic selection of Olympic and Paralympic representatives visiting and training with us.”
