ABSTRACT
The article reports on a statement from Stephen Frost, head of diversity and inclusion for the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (Locog), that the 2012 Olympics will not have the resources to deliver on the scale of the 2008 Beijing games in China. According to Frost, the committee will benchmark recruitment agencies hiring staff for the games according to their ability to "source the most talented and diverse candidates." Frost said the Chinese games had "exceeded expectations" when it came to diversity.
