GSK becomes London 2012’s 25th sponsor

30 Nov 09

The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) today announces GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) as its Official Laboratory Services Provider in a Tier Three deal. GSK will provide facilities and equipment to enable Kings College London to operate a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) accredited satellite laboratory at Games-time.



There will be thousands of samples analysed throughout the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games and the laboratory will be in operation 24 hours a day throughout the Games. The facility will be based at one of GSK’s research and development sites in the UK offering the capacity for King’s College to independently run the laboratory, working with the International Olympic Committee and International Paralympic Committee during London 2012.



London 2012 Chairman Sebastian Coe commented, “Doping control is a requirement of any Olympic Games and Paralympic Games. We have taken a partnership approach to delivering it for London 2012 and I’m thrilled that GlaxoSmithKline is on board. Its involvement, working with the King’s College experts will see world class facilities available for an independently run anti-doping operation throughout the Games.”
