Clement's bus lost in London for four hours
12:59, 16 Jul 2012
Two-time world 400 metres hurdles champion Kerron Clement was getting a less than favourable first impression of London this morning as the bus taking him to the Olympic Village struggled to find its destination.
The American, among hundreds of athletes from across the world arriving in the capital this morning ahead of the Games, claimed the bus had been lost for four hours.
Clement Tweeted: "Um, so we've been lost on the road for 4hrs. Not a good first impression London.
"Athletes are sleepy, hungry and need to pee. Could we get to the Olympic Village please."
The 26-year-old, who won the world title in 2007 and 2009 before surrendering the crown to Great Britain's Dai Greene in Daegu last year, is the the defending Olympic silver medallist.
A media shuttle bus also had difficulty finding its destination. The double decker, travelling from Russell Square to the Olympic Park in Stratford, pulled over 30 minutes into its journey.
The driver said: "Sorry about this."
He then got out a map, before performing a U-turn and quickly getting back on the correct route.
