Leah meets Sam who's got a close eye on the Olympic Park

Last updated at 05:13

We've told you loads about the 2012 London Olympics, including everything from the amazing stadiums to the cost of the tickets. But what about the people living close to where it's all going to happen?

We sent Leah to meet Sam, who's got the perfect view of London's Olympic park right from his bedroom window.

Sam's been closely watching all of the construction work going on at the site and has even been invited to take a special guided tour of the finished aquatic centre.

But that's not all. Watch the clip to see what he had to tell Leah about meeting a former British Olympian too...
