1948’s reconstruction Games are reconstructed

From today, July 29 – the exact 60th anniversary of the opening ceremony of the last time London staged the Olympic Games – the 1948 post-war Olympics will be reconstructed day by day on

You will be able to read a report on all the major events exactly 60 years after they were held.

The medal table will be updated day by day and you can read all about the venues and the programme on the website, just
like you would be able to if the 1948 Games were held with 21st century communications technology available.
