According to Hsu, GE will provide state-of-the-art technology and infrastructure to facilitate the athletes in the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

GE is also designing the lighting for the warm-up track situated in the south of the stadium, allowing the viewers at home to watch their favorite athletes prepare for competition.
During the Olympic and Paralympic Games, a total of 23,000 athletes and officials will reside in the Olympic Village. GE Power Controls are supplying some of the power distribution equipment to the residential apartments to provide maximal comfort for the athletes.
Situated in the Olympic Village, the Polyclinic will give athletes the best medical service possible during the games. GE Healthcare is supplying a diverse array of digital imaging equipment to the Polyclinic including MRI, CT, X-ray and ultrasound equipment allowing the diagnosis of even the smallest strains and sprains to provide athletes and coaching teams with vital information for competition.
