Lord's on target on cricket-to-archery changes

Share This Story



Organizers say Lord's cricket ground has been granted permission to begin making changes for the archery competition at the 2012 Olympics.

Temporary facilities and structures - such as a range and seating for 5,000 spectators - can now be installed at the famous ground. Archery will be held for a week at Lord's during the London Games, and Monday's decision on preparations was largely a formality.

London Organizing Committee chairman Sebastien Coe calls Lord's a ''world-class venue'' that will provide a ''spectacular and innovative setting.''
