alt BANGLADESH are the latest country set to conclude a deal to set up a pre-Games training camp in Britain before London 2012 after the country's senior Olympic official visited Harrow.


The London Borough made the offer to Wali Ullah, the chief executive of the Bangladesh Olympic Association (BOA), after he inspected the facilities, including Harrow School, the area's most famous landmark.


The public school in North-West London was attended by Winston Churchill and Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first Prime Minister.


Ullah also visited Harrow Leisure Centre and Bannister Sports Centre.


He said: "We have been offered to get some facilities at the Harrow Council in Britain.


"It is obviously a great opportunity for Bangladeshi athletes.


"BOA may actively consider going ahead with the offer from Harrow.


"Harrow is a beautiful part of England and I am very impressed by the wide range of sports facilities on offer - everything from table tennis to swimming."


Ullah also claimed that Canary Wharf PLC have offered to help support Bangladesh's preparations for London 2012 by setting up a scholarship scheme to help its athletes train in the build-up to the Games.


Jamaica have also promised to send a coach to work with the country's athletes.


Bangladesh, which gained independence in 1971 and is the seventh biggest country in the world with a population of 150 million, only made its debut in the Olympics at Los Angeles in 1984 but they have never won a medal.


They sent only five athletes to the Beijing Games earlier this year, who competed in athletics, shooting and swimming.


Earlier this week, insidethegames revealed that Japan are set to sign a deal to base themselves at Loughborough University.
