There is nothing that can inspire you or your children’s imagination more than the sight of the Olympic torch and the knowledge of all that it embodies and with the crowds that have supported the route so far the country is showing its support very enthusiastically
There are less than 70 days to go before the world’s greatest sporting extravaganza. And this time everyone has an opportunity to be part of it! The Olympics is steeped in history and tradition and celebrates people from all walks of life. This is true of even the torch bearers , from veteran Olympians to people who have fought death defying illnesses, young and old from each local community along the Torch route are being represented. The athletes’ dedication is inspirational to us all, whether we are beginning a new fitness plan or re-dedicating ourselves to a non fitness commitment or plan. This is a great time to inspire children to do the same.
