LONDON — The athletes competing in the 2012 Summer Olympics won''t be the only ones who come from all points around the globe, the cleaning staff is just as diverse, according to The Gazette.

An army of cleaners, nearly all of whom are students, will be flown in from different countries, all ready to play their part in the Games and earn a little money while they''re at it, the article stated.

According to the article, the cleaners will live in a place dubbed "Camp Cleanevent," a compound on the site of a former scrap metal merchant with about 100 temporary cabins, each sleeping 10 people in bunk beds, but its occupants are determined to look on the bright side.

"I like this camp, I like being here, so I think London is a nice place. I like working in the Olympic Games. I think the camp is good because there are a lot of new people who I''ve met, but it is a bit crowded," said one cleaner, a 21-year-old medical student from Hungary.

The recruits come from far and wide to join what can only be described as massive cleaning operation for the Games; many are from Hungary and Spain, with others from across Europe and beyond, the article noted.
