Modern day Olympic Games initiated in Athens 1896 BOA founded 1905 Held 1908 and 1948 Olympic Games Inspired Paralympic Games from Stoke Mandeville Games in 1948 Slide3:  British teams have been present at every Olympic Games since 1896 Five International Olympic Sessions have been held in Britain; There have been 19 British members of the IOC Britain has entered over 7,000 athletes into Olympic Games; British athletes have won 704 medals, 200+ of them gold Britain has bid four times for the Games in the last 20 years “if the Olympic Games exist today, the praise should go not to a Greek, but to Dr Brookes of Wenlock." Baron De Coubertin in his Obituary to Dr William Penny Brooks Do you remember this?:  Do you remember this? Courtesy of BBC via DCMS website 2012 Aim:  2012 Aim “To host an inspirational, safe and inclusive Olympic and Paralympic Games and leave a sustainable legacy for London and the UK” What does it mean to you? What does this mean?:  What does this mean?

Conclusions from research todate:  Conclusions from research todate A participation legacy is possible Consistent approach for measuring trends needed if legacy is to be valid. There will be difficulty in measuring trends across Olympiads as each survey has asked a different question Do not assume that only Olympic sports will benefit from increased participation To achieve a participation legacy will take a co-ordinated innovative approach – Planning now!! Public Health Outcomes research not been available! Need some inspiration!:  Need some inspiration! “A country can truly call itself sporting when the majority of its people feel a personal need for sport.” Baron Pierre De Coubertin "The greatest barrier to success is the fear of failure" Sven Goran Erikson "Sport has the power to change the world, it has the power to inspire in a way that little else does, it speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope, where once there was despair. It laughs in the face of discrimination." Nelson Mandela “A man's health can be judged by which he takes two at a time - pills or stairs.” - Joan Welsh “In no way can sport be considered a luxury object “ Baron Pierre De Coubertin A legacy for the West Midlands!:  A legacy for the West Midlands! How do we harness the Olympics and Paralympics to affect a cultural change in activity participation in our region? How will we know if we have achieved it? How do we stop the Games being an armchair festival of sport? If we don’t succeed what have we done wrong? How do we negate negative aspects of the Games? How can we bring back the ideals of the Much Wenlock Olympics back the West Mids?
