This week I stumbled across an announcement in SportNext magazine about the launch of the social media platform for the Olympics 2012 - The Olympics Hub.
When I contacted Sir Sebastian Coe back in 2010 about investing in my sports networking site www.esporters dot com - he thanked me "for my suggestion" - it seems it has taken them over 2 years to launched this site. Back in January 2010 Seb Coe wrote that "we are currently in the process of building this and plan to launch in 2010".
My site was aimed at achieving more than just a summary of what is already being said by the top stars [who already have loads of publicity]. It was a way for talent / up-coming athletes to profile themselves and develop fans and a support network round them to help them achieve their sporting goals.
Although my site www.esporters dot com is no longer live, it is great to have a signed letter from the great man himself - Sebastian Coe. However I wish he had listened more carefully to my "suggestion" as he could have achieved so much more with a site which had more legacy value by helping "talent" create a support nework/fans and not just get the current stars more exposure during the Olympics, which lacks legacy.
