London 2012 Ambassadors to Learn Parkour
Tue, 2012-04-17 12:33
This week, Thursday 19th April, we will be putting the 20 ambassadors who won the right to have the 2012 Olympics in London through their parkour paces.
LOCOG, the London 2012 organisiing committee led by Sebastien Coe, want to reward their ambassadors with something suitably challenging and fun, and so we'll be running a day of workshops for the group at our Olympics Inspire-Mark LEAP facility in central London. Lord Coe will be present too.
Accompanying the ambassadors will be 50 young people from The Construction Crew, a group of primary and secondary school children who have over the past few years made regular visits to the Olympic sites under development to document their construction.
We're looking forward to introducing both groups to parkour, and we'll have an update on how they did after Thursday!
