Olympian Jonathan Edwards gets “good luck” send-off from Meg before crucial 2012 Olympic

Thursday, June 23, 2005

Just days before Olympic gold triple jumper Jonathan Edwards flies to Singapore as part of the London 2012 delegation hoping to bring the Olympic Games back to Britain for the first time in 64 years, Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn has added her support to the 2012 campaign.


Meg said,


“If London is awarded the Games on 6 July, it will be a fantastic day for the whole of the UK.  Hosting the Olympics is a great honour and will bring benefits not only to London but across the UK; including Sheffield. We have high quality sporting facilities which athletes will be able to use to train for the Games.


“There will be the chance to host athlete preparation camps months ahead of the actual event.  Tourism will get a boost and UK companies will be able to compete for a whole range of contracts.  After the end of the Games over 1 million pieces of sports equipment used during a London Olympics would be passed onto sports clubs and charities.


“But probably most important of all, it will provide a unique inspiration for children to get much more involved in sport and physical activity.”


Jonathan Edwards said,


“I’ve been fortunate to have competed in four Olympic Games and it is an amazing experience.  I won my Gold at the Sydney 2000 Games but for any athlete, the chance to reach the very top and win on home soil is the ultimate dream. 


London has a great bid and has a very real chance of wining on 6 July.  If we do, it will be the greatest day for sport our country has ever seen.”
