ATHLETES training for the London Olympics may soon be going to hospital to shape up for 2012.
The gym at Mile End Hospital in East London, just two miles from the Olympics park now under construction, reopened its doors for the first time today after a �1 million revamp.
It offers therapy for patients after its two-year refurbishment—but is also now being made available as a new training facility for athletes.
