Es are currently whizzing athletes and officials around the Olympic Park and Games sites, a trio of Mini MINIs are being readied to assist during field events at the Olympic Stadium. The specially designed radio-controlled EV will ferry javelins, discuses, hammers and shots back from the field to the throwing areas. Three models, roughly a quarter scale of the full-size car, will carry out this essential task operated by specially trained Games Makers, as the officials are known.
