The London Youth Games has a long and proud history and counts many of this country's finest athletes as part of its alumni, including Christine Ohuorugu, Bradley Wiggins, Sophie Bray and Mo Farah.

We are looking carefully at ways we can help the London Youth Games continue to offer young Londoners excellent opportunities for sports competition, in a sustainable and innovative way.
