We may not have won gold in the race to draw Olympians to Northern Ireland but it seems we're not trailing at the back when it comes to making the most of the biggest games to hit the UK's shores in years.
Apparently, 43 local companies have managed to secure £40m worth of business for the London 2012 Olympics, which will be under starters orders in a year's time.
Having had a day sifting through properties being placed in receivership it's great to see local firms flying the flag for our construction industry at such a prestigious event.
The Olympic horses can rest easy over where the shavings for equestrian stables will come from. Only the best, of course, from Boyd Bedding in Newtownstewart. And if you were wondering who's got the best view for covering the beach volleyball, then look no further than Cunningham Covers in Maghera.
