It's a Mini adventure! Tiny car will deliver javelins, discus and shot to Games athletes

One of the most important roles at the London 2012 athletics on Friday will be given to… a mini Mini.
This little car will deliver the javelins, shot and discus' – loaded into the car through its sun roof – to the athletes as they are getting ready to compete.
The car is 39 inches long and is radio controlled – it's set to be the most famous remote control car of all time.
Tiny brother: The remote control mini is considerably smaller than the car it imitates

It can carry a load up to 8kg and will do its own mini marathon of around 6,000 metres each day.
Specially trained volunteers will operate the cars – when they signed up to help out, it's unlikely they had this in mind!
