18th April 2012
With only 100 days to go until London 2012, all UK schools and colleges can now make sure their students get involved with the launch of 2012 Sporting Legacy.
Adaptable Travel are offering you the chance to make sure your pupils engage in the Olympic Games with the 2012 Sporting Legacy event. Your pupils will hear from, and have the chance to meet British athletes who will be competing at London 2012 (and who knows...maybe even see a medal from London 2012).
This unique event, looking set to be a sell-out for a third year in a row, will feature two British Olympic athletes, giving the opportunity for your pupils to hear about London 2012. They will learn what it was like walking out at the Olympic Stadium in front of 80,000 home fans, what the athletes village was like, and what sacrifices were made to try and make Team GB.
Your group will also have the opportunity to tour the London 2012 Olympic sites with an official guide – to see the post-games Olympic legacy in action.
London 2012 features the slogan “Inspire a Generation” – this is your chance to ensure your pupils are inspired.
Jade Johnson, British Olympic long-jumper wowed audiences at the last 2012 Sporting Legacy, and commented on Twitter afterwards: “Thanks to AdaptableTravel for a fantastic day yesterday! Its AMAZING what u do for the young ppl. I had so much fun! Hope u to see u soon”.
Tom Bailey who attended the last 2012 Sporting Legacy event commented on the Adaptable Travel Facebook page “Great Day!”
