Behind the scenes GE have been hard at work for London 2012. They've helped the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games with over 100 projects, this includes being responsible for all of the moving, building,
powering and curing throughout the duration.

If you've ever used Bing Maps before you'll already be familiar with some of its functions. Users can click on each
landmark to find out information about its infrastructure (for instance you can read about the various GE technology found in each Olympic venue).

If that isn't enough, GE have also included historical Olympic information within the map. Search for locations of past Olympic Games venues and remember triumphs from days gone by.

Do you think you have what it takes to power the Olympic Games? There is also an opportunity for users to complete a series of challenges for a chance to win GE merchandise - just follow the prompts on the map's website.
