The London 2012 Olympic Games: the cultural tourist as a pillar of sustainability.

This chapter highlights the global scope that the Olympics has, not just in sporting terms but also in its capacity for cultural exchange. The chapter presents a treatise on the emergence of possible Olympic hosting in 'the east' and the cultural significance for the event travelling beyond a western cultural focus. The chapter also shows that with the potential for large numbers of visitors at the London Olympics from Islamic countries (Middle East), there are cultural challenges for both the Olympic organization and indeed the venue hosts and organizers to be able to respond to the cultural needs of these potential visitors and participants. These cultural tourists will have a need for daily prayer and other cultural sensitivities that organizers have to respect, such as gender segregation, dress code and culturally determined dietary needs.
