I READ with interest your story last week on the mayor's Olympic initiative. This is the best news the city has had in years and it should put this city on the map.

Now if the mayor can get us some new sporting venues that would be quite something. An all-weather race track around the Downham Road field, a new gym or anything that will encourage sports in Ely would be welcome.

Go for it Mr Watson and get the East Cambs District Council to back you. I'm sure the people of Ely will back you 100 per cent. I am over-the-moon about the idea, although it's come 70 years too late for me, but I can sit back in my armchair and watch the events. The good local train links to London should encourage a few people to go and watch our athletes compete.
