Lord Coe pleads to 'self-indulgent' protestors not to wreck Olympic games

London, Wed, 11 Apr 2012 ANI

London, Apr 11(ANI): Lord Coe, the chairman of the London Olympic's Organising Committee (LOCOG), has appealed to protestors not to mess up the London Olympics by unwisely protesting, as a university Boat Race demonstrator did to great effect on Saturday.

However, the LOCOG is expecting protestors to try and hijack the Olympic games with their incessant protests.

Lord Coe said he was 'profoundly depressed' by the actions of the protester, Trenton Oldfield, who interrupted the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race by swimming in front of the crews.

"I found it profoundly depressing that someone could be so self indulgent." Such acts were "destroying the dreams of people who have spent most of their young lives preparing for that moment," The Independent quoted Lord Coe, as saying.

"We will be factoring what happened into our planning. Our road and outdoor events will be managed by event service teams and road marshals who are primarily volunteers. We hope people do not undertake foolish incidents like this, which hardly endear people to their causes," a statement from the LOCOG said. (ANI)
