Sported Newsletter August 2015

Welcome to the latest Sported newsletter!

We begin by looking back…the 6th July 2015 was a special day for Sported, as it marked the tenth anniversary of the IOC president, Jacques Rogge, announcing to the world that London had the honour of hosting the 30th Olympiad.

It was a momentous decision, not just for London and UK sport, but also for Sported which was born out of the legacy promises made in Singapore on that day.

To celebrate our heritage from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games we are proud to share with you our latest promotional video, narrated by Lord Seb Coe and featuring some of our brilliant members and mentors!
