In addition to his role organizing London 2012, Lord Coe is now the UK Government’s official Olympic and Paralympic Legacy Ambassador, as well as an Olympian who won gold in the men’s 1,500 meters in 1980 and 1984, and set eight world records.  Lord Coe talked about the 2012 London Olympics and the longer-term, economic benefits of the Games.
