IT'S fantastic news that venues in Dartford have been chosen to possibly host Olympic stars during the 2012 games.

It just highlights the excellent sports facilities we have in our town, which I think are so often overlooked.

The Judo Club, Dartford Football Club and the Arrow Riding Centre have all been identified as potential sites for the training of the athletes competing in the games.

I really do think it's brilliant for the local community. Imagine the profile that it will bring to north Kent. It will make our home an area to be really proud of.

The Olympics are going to be such a fantastic event, and as we can see, London is not going to be the only place that benefits, so many other places are going to see the advantages of holding the greatest sports competition in the world.

I hope that the community will come together and support the venues that have been shortlisted as potential training sites and we can prove to the world how great our town really is.
