Behind the Scenes at the London Olympics and Paralympics Veterinary Clinic
Just days before the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games, accredited media were finally invited to take a tour of the veterinary facilities. (I take full credit for the opportunity; I think I finally wore down the officials with my eager pestering.)
As I suspected, other journalists were interested in seeing the clinic, as well. Olympic veterinary-services manager Dr. Jenny Hall was a gracious and accommodating host, and I thank her for the fascinating peek behind the scenes. (Read my interview with Dr. Hall here.)
So come along and I’ll give you a photo tour of what, for a few weeks every four years, is the world’s most important equine veterinary clinic. (And it’s still very much in operation as I write this: The same facilities will be used for the horses competing at the 2012 London Paralympic Games, which get under way on August 29.) Hover your cursor over each photo and a full caption will be displayed.
