Who are the real Olympic winners?

When political failure bites, a distraction is needed to avert attention. The Olympian opportunist Boris Johnson knows all about this. Whilst he was mayor, the London Olympics was sold to the British people on the idea of urban renewal but the theory hasn’t matched the reality.
