Imagine owning the mattress upon which Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte dreamed of capturing the gold, or the tall chairs upon which the umpires ruled during the diving Games. A few of the items for sale fall into the "who would want that?" category (an extension cord), but most would be modern, well-designed additions to your yard and home. Those beanbags and chairs on the balcony enjoyed by New Zealand athletes are among the offerings from Remains of the Games.
After the Games, the Olympic Village apartments in London will be available for rent or purchase.
Remains of The Games is an autonomous trading division dedicated to the disposal of the fixtures, fittings and specific assets from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
