SCHOOL TRIP ALLOWS UK ATHLETES TO SHOWCASE OLYMPIC LEGACY

Sharron Davies will meet pupils at event

The motivational talks and presentations by some of Britain’s best athletes are a massive attraction to school pupils

British athletes Sharron Davies, Daley Thompson, Jade Johnson and Derek Redmond are helping to showcase the London 2012 Olympic legacy by attending a unique event aimed at school children in February 2011.

‘The 2012 Sporting Legacy’ is being organised by Adaptable Travel and will be a two day event held at the Emirates Stadium in London on 7th- 8th February 2011.

It is aimed at children aged between 14 and 18 years and includes discussions and activities presented by the athletes as well as an exclusive tour of the 2012 Olympic venues.

Ian Webb, Managing Director at Adaptable Travel said:

“The motivational talks and presentations by some of Britain’s best athletes are a massive attraction to school pupils. The trip enables teachers to introduce the Olympics to their curriculum learning and makes the 2012 Games relevant to classrooms across the UK.

“It will cover a range of subjects such as Sports and PE, Business Studies, Media Studies, Human Geography, Design & Technology, Engineering, Events Management, History and Citizenship and so should appeal to a wide range of students from across the UK.”

Last week marked the two- year count down to the Games in London.

Swimmer Sharron Davies, MBE, who first swam for Britain at the age of 11, said:

“Introducing sport to children at a young age is crucial in creating future stars but this event is a lot more than that. It aims to really investigate the values that make up an Olympic Champion and how these values can be transferred into all aspects of life.”
