Portraits celebrate 2012 construction teams

Between now and the end of September the National Portrait Gallery in London is showing a series of portraits celebrating some of the engineering heroes and heroines working on the 2012 Olympics.

The Road to 2012 display is in the Main Hall and is part of a three year collaboration between the gallery and London 2012 sponsor BT.

The portraits celebrate high profile and low profile people who are key to making the Games happen.

Pictured here in a portrait taken by photographer Brian Griffin are Mike Kenny (right) and his brother in law Mick Fee (left) of Watson Steel Structures, with Mike’s son Jason Kenny (centre) who was a track cyclist medallist at Beijing 2008.

With two years to go to the start of the London Games, the Olympic Delivery Authority has announced that 6450 people are currently working on the Park and 2,909 people are at work on the Olympic village.
