Swiss Lead Team for London Games

Looks like Swiss born Denis Oswald will be leading a team of 15 people for the next seven years, responsible for assisting the London organizing committee. According to the question and answer session Denis did for Swiss Info, he answers what's already different for London compared to Athens.

For those of you who don't know who Denis Oswald is (just like me). Denis was born in , born Neuchâtel and was a member of the Swiss rowing team from 1968 to 1976. He was also national champion 13 times and took part in three Olympic Games: Mexico (1968), Munich (1972) and Montreal (1976), winning one bronze medal.

Denis has been a member of the IOC since 1991 and in 2001 was appointed coordinator for the Athens Games, before being chosen for the same position for the 2012 London Games in August of 2005.
