Boxing, judo, taekwondo, weightlifting, wrestling, table tennis
Opened on the site of the original Royal Victoria Dock in 2000, the 65,000 square-metre indoor venue has the "largest column-free hall in Europe" and regularly hosts leisure and trade exhibitions.
The centre has been the base for the London triathlon and Britain's Olympic heavyweight boxing champion Audley Harrison has fought there.
On the transport side, it is close to both the city centre and the proposed Olympic zone in the east, served by the Docklands Light Railway and not far from London City Airport.
It would host four separate arenas in 2012, staging boxing, judo, taekwondo, weightlifting, wrestling and table tennis and accommodating between 6,000 and 10,000 spectators
