It was announced today that fashion designer Stella McCartney will work with adidas to design the kit for the British Olympic and Paralympic Teams.

Stella McCartney has been designing sportswear for adidas since 2005 so we’re sure she’ll have lots of good ideas up her sleeve.

Stella McCartney said:

As a British fashion designer it is an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be creative director of Team GB as the hosting nation of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

1,000 Days to Go to London 2012 Olympic Games http://blog.visitlondon.com/2009/10/1000-days-to-go-to-london-2012-olympic-games/ http://blog.visitlondon.com/2009/10/1000-days-to-go-to-london-2012-olympic-games/#comments Fri, 30 Oct 2009 15:00:28 +0000 http://blog.visitlondon.com/?p=3472 Instructors and young sailors from the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy - the sailing venue for the London 2012 Olympic Games - mark 1,000 days to go until the start of the Olympic Games at Durdle Door in Dorset

On Saturday, there are just 1,000 days to go until the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) has released details suggesting more than 5 million people are now “involved” in the Games in one way or other.

So, if you’re reading this, chances are you’re either one of them, or you know someone who is!

Whether it’s the Inspire Programme looking at community projects, the Get Set programme in schools, the Cultural Olympiad, School Sports Week, or your company is working on the Games, it’s becoming clear than 2012 is having quite an impact.

So, tomorrow is time for London to celebrate this involvement in different ways:

With just 1,000 days to go, all eyes are on the next step: the aquatic centre’s roof is due to be finished before the end of the year…

But, alongside London 2012, we want to know what you’re going to achieve in the next 1000 days? Let us know in the comments below, tell twitter @london2012team, or visit www.london2012.com.
