London 2012: The Olympic volunteers who made the Games


The 70,000 Olympic volunteers, or Games Makers, have been widely praised for their work on London's Olympic and Paralympic Games.

London 2012 Chairman Lord Coe said this week the volunteers had cultivated one of the country's biggest fan clubs, and his reference to them at the Paralympic closing ceremony drew one of the most sustained ovations of the night.

Nine thousand Games Makers have been invited to attend Monday's victory parade by TeamGB and ParalympicsGB athletes.
