BBC Covers Parkour for 2012 Olympics
Wed, 2012-08-01 15:22
The Olympics has really embraced parkour as a discipline that can showcase everything that is best about both the city of London and the Olympic spirit, and we've been happy to be involved in a whole series of awareness-raising and launch events this past year in the run-up to the events themselves, including the unveiling of the Olympic rings at St Pancras station - official entry point for incoming athletes - and the One Year To Go display at Trafalgar Square. At the moment there is a host of press-related pieces going on, and earlier in the week we had the Associated Press interviewing Dan for an upcoming feature on what the Olympics means to sport in London and to the non-Olympic disciplines that are such a big part of city living.
Keep your eyes peeled for the features, and if you're in the Olympic sites or the London parks keep an eye on the big screens for a couple of videos we shot a while ago specifically for the Olympic period.
