LONDON (GBR): Tottenham Hotspur’s judicial review against the decision to award the Olympic Stadium to West Ham United after London 2012 will not be taking place as planned after the Premier League club withdrew. The dropping of the judicial review follows last week’s decision that the venue would remain in public ownership rather than be handed over to the Championship club after London 2012. Tottenham confirmed to insidethegames that they would no longer be going ahead with the legal action.
TORONTO (CAN): Two-Time Canadian Olympian and 2007 world silver medalist Gary Reed has launched the Reed Athletics Fund, a Track & Field Non-Profit organization. That is to provide financial and other support to Canadian men and women attempting to participate in the Olympics and World Championships. Reed wants to help them during the developmental phase of their sporting careers to assist them in reaching their full potential. Reed, now a real estate advisor in Vancouver, has committed to donate a portion of his income to the Fund and intends to support it for the rest of his life.
