Loud music makes London 2012 Olympic Games 'even better'

The organisers of London 2012 are confident they they have got the volume level of music in the main stadium "about right".

As reported in the The Guardian, there had been some complaints that music had been detracting from the action during the women's 10,000m final. But a spokeswomen for the London 2012 organising committee said that the use of music had received "loads of really positive feedback" about the atmosphere in the venues.

Locog has worked with Universal Music to divide over 2,000 songs into five distinct playlists themed to provide the most appropriate soundtrack for each sport.
