London’s successful bid to host the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games was in no small part based around a commitment to using the Games to transform the sporting landscape of this country.
It was hoped that the Games would be used as a catalyst to drive up participation across the country and help to tackle issues such as obesity, ill health and crime.
At time of publication there were just over three years remaining until the Games start. With this document, the Mayor of London is seeking to play his part in ensuring that the commitment is fulfilled.
The London Assembly are currently investigating whether the Mayor's £15m programme to boost grassroots sports participation in the run up to the Olympics is on track.
