Trent Bridge could play host to some of theworld’s best sportsmen and women after Nottinghamshire put in a bid to run a2012 Olympic warm-up archery event.

The ground is one of 10 sporting venues inthe county to have submitted applications to be in the Olympic Games brochurefor approved sites for training camps and bases.

And Notts have already had early talks withNottinghamshire Archery Society to see how they can move their bid forward.

Notts Chief Executive Derek Brewer said:“We thought this would be an ideal opportunity to showcase our city, county andthe region.

“The county’s connection with Robin Hoodprovides a good link with archery, and with Lord’s due to host the main Olympiccompetition, Trent Bridge would be the perfect venue to let the competitorsacclimatise to conditions in the country.”

A final list of approved sites will bedrawn up in the New Year and circulated to every Olympic nation following theBeijing Games in August 2008.
