altBRITISH OLYMPIC ASSOCIATION (BOA) chief excecutive Simon Clegg (pictured) has today vowed to address key concerns British cycling hold over the legacy of facilities for the sport after the 2012 Games.


British Cycling are worried about the limited amenities set to be available for elite road training and competition in the Olympic park after the London showpiece.


President Brian Cookson this week expressed his disappointment at the Olympic Delivery Authority's (ODA) failure to take his organisation's concerns into account.


He said: "We are very disappointed at the failure by the ODA to make sufficient clear movement towards meeting our legitimate concerns regarding the legacy provision, concerns which we have been expressing to them for some time now.


"We will also be raising our concerns at the highest level with other relevant bodies and agencies involved in the delivery and legacy provision of the London 2012 Olympics."


But Clegg assured British Cycling their concerns have been noted and vowed to discuss the issue in the near future.


Clegg said: "They will have an outstanding velodrome and this will become a critical component for track cycling in the UK.


"British Cycling have expressed some concerns about some other aspects of legacy provision.


"We will be bringing those discussions to the table over the next couple of weeks."


Clegg yesterday gave a presentation to the International Olympic Committee on the legacy British sport plans to implement on the back of hosting the 2012 Games.


He referred to the BOA's determination to increase the status of sport in Britain, to finish fourth in the 2012 medal table and capitalise on that success in the years to come.


He said: "The driving motivation for the bid from the BOA was a clear understanding that nothing has the capability of driving sport higher or more quickly up the political and social agenda.


"The real sporting legacy will be how we capitalise on that enhanced status of sport after 2012.


"We have this aspirational target of fourth place, which is ambitious but achievable.


"We have unprecedented levels of funding to help support those goals.


"British sport is undoubtedly moving in the right direction.


Some 87 per cent of the athletes who went to the recent Youth Olympics in Australia came back with a medal.


"That is really encouraging for us because the vast majority of athletes who competed down there are the right age to be part of Team GB in 2012."
