(ATR) As the countdown to the vote for the 2012 Olympic host city reaches 75 days, London unveiled a Countdown Clock in Trafalgar Square.

â??I know that winning the right to host the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games here in London would be a huge boost to the capital, the UK and the Olympic Movement,â? said Cherie Blair, leading bid ambassador for London 2012.

Sebastian Coe, Chairman for London 2012, agrees that London has a good chance to host the games. â??I believe that London has a winning blueprint and just this week the Mayor announced that a new hockey facility will be built in London regardless of the outcome of the bid.â?
