This is a classic case of people power. The Voice announced this morning that they have now been granted media accreditation by the British Olympic Association (BOA) to enter and report in the Olympic Stadium.
The Voice Newspaper was initially overlooked for getting access into the Olympic Games Stadium to report on various events even though the Games will be happening just minutes away from The Voice’s HQ.
But it seems the petition, which was set up and signed by thousands who disagree with the British Olympic Association (BOA) decision, has won the BOA over.
All kinds of celebrities got involved:
