Change for North Greenwich Arena set up?

At the London 2012 test Event, many were discussing the use of a pink carpet against the red and cream Gymnova equipment. Many wondered why a pink carpet was used when pink and red clearly aren’t suited to sit side by side. Beth Tweddle explained to Kyle Shewfelt that each Olympic Sport was assigned a colour by the British Olympic Association, pink was assigned to gymnastics.

The Mail Online reports that the British Gymnastics Associations also shared the same thoughts as many of the media and fans in the arena and has asked for the colour to be changed for the London 2012 Games.  Women’s National Team Coach Colin Still told the Mail:

“We didn’t like the colour scheme.”

“It didn’t affect the performance but we didn’t like it visually. It was pink and we just didn’t like it. We have had yellow, we have had blue but this wasn’t nice. But I don’t think it will change. We thought the rest of the arena was good though. We are really looking forward to it now.”

Hopefully the BOA will take the hint and change the colour, being in the arena, the feeling with the pink carpet just wasn’t right. The likes of blue is a lot stronger and in my opinion more professional looking for on the world stage. Below is a picture of mine own, taken at the empty North Greenwich arena before gymnasts and fans entered the arena. Compare that to the 2009 World Championships, held in the same arena with Gymnova equipment, the blue is far more superior.
