Olympic Association chief describes "one idiot" disruptive acts as 2012 Games' major challenge

London, Mon, 09 Apr 2012 ANI

London, April 9 (ANI): British Olympic Association Chairman Lord Moynihan has said that the organizers are facing a 'major challenge' to prevent acts by "one idiot" disrupting the 2012 Games.

According to The Telegraph, Lord Moynihan admitted that security officials could do little to prevent actions by individual activists, such as last weekend's University Boat Race, in which a 35-year-old Australian, Trenton Oldfield, was charged with public order offence after swimming into the path of the Oxford and Cambridge boats.

He, however, stressed that every possible measure was being taken to protect athletes and spectators.

Lord Moynihan said that the organizers were working closely with the police and security services and expressed confidence that earlier incidents involving a security breach would not be repeated again.

Police officer in charge of Olympic security Allison said that his team was well prepared to deal with culprits intent on disrupting the Games through protests.

He also warned that the Games could prove a magnet for "crime tourists", who will travel to the UK specifically this Olympics to target tourists. (ANI)
