More than 30 years after becoming an Olympic champion, Sebastian Coe has become one of the first people to test the running track for the 2012 London Games.
The red track, made by Italian firm Mondo, was revealed on Monday with 10 months until the Olympics begin.
Coe, the 1,500-meter Olympic champion in 1980 and '84, ran 100 meters with schoolchildren before completing a lap with Hannah England, the reigning world 1,500-meter silver medalist.
The 55-year-old Coe says "seeing some of our top British athletes on the track with local school children really underlines the stadium's potential for 2012 and beyond."
The 80,000-seat stadium will be reduced to a 60,000-capacity venue for football and athletics after the games.
