Olympic Triathlon: Behind-the-Scenes Tour
Get the scoop on the behind-the-scenes action at the London 2012 Triathlon venue
The site is like a small village. As well as the grandstand and transition area, there is a huge media centre which will be open to the world's media two hours before each race and for four hours afterwards. There are two gantries for photographers - the one by the swim start has been built low enough for photographers to capture the action at a low angle.
There's a massive broadcast centre, an athlete's lounge, a secure area for storing bikes, a VIP lounge, portacabins for doping control and a large marquee to feed volunteers – there will be 2000 on each race day. There are even more than 15 back-up generators to keep everything running in the unlikely event of a power failure.
