Eton Dorney, as Dorney Lake was called by London 2012, had more than 400,000 visitors over the Games period. All Olympic venues were assessed by an exit poll of spectators and of all the sites, Dorney was voted the best Olympic venue.
A total of 30 medal events were held on the lake over the Games period, and Team GB won a total of 12 medals - 6 gold, 2 silver and 4 bronze, making Dorney one of the most successful venues for Team GB.
Denise Oswald (IOC member and FISA President) declared Dorney Lake as the best ever Olympic Rowing Venue.
Dorney Lake will continue to provide a world-class training and competition facility and the home of Eton College's rowing and the British Canoe Union High Performance 'podium' group.
Dorney will be hosting the Rowing World Cup in June 2013.
Dorney Lake is a 2,200m, eight-lane course with a separate return lane constructed to meet international standards. The site was the brain child of Eton College who planned and built the venue that was completed in 2006. Whilst Eton owns the site, it is leased to Dorney Lake Trust and its day to day management is the responsibility of Dorney Lake Services.
The project has delivered the best rowing course in the UK and a world renowned course that has gained high praise from both competitors and spectators alike.
The Lake is set in 450 acres of parkland which includes an Arboretum and Nature Conservation area. During the bid to host the 2012 Games, a Finish Tower was added to the course in time for the Rowing World Cup in 2005.
