Olympics venue up for Building of the Year

London's Olympic Games are already up for an award after one of the key venues was selected to compete for Building of the Year.

The Velodrome, with its distinctive sweeping roof and pale pink cladding, was included in the long list for the award, after winning a design award from the Royal Institute of British Architects.

The 6,000-seater venue was the first Olympic venue to be completed and was opened in February by Mayor Boris Johnson, having been delivered bang on time and budget.

It will host the Olympic and Paralympic Track Cycling events and after the Games, it will be used by elite athletes and the local community and will include a café, bike hire and cycle workshop facilities.
