Sword worked with LOCOG, the organizing committee for the games from late 2010 to develop and implement crowd management and stewarding plans to ensure successful operational delivery for the games.  Over 1500 staff were deployed by Sword throughout the venues. Sword trainers and management team were heavily involved in training thousands of the volunteers who were a key element in both the delivery and legacy of the Games.
