Olympic Gold Medallists launch sport campaign

Olympians Nicola Adams and Luke Campbell have teamed up to launch the Join In Local Sport campaign. The pair join other Team GB athletes, the Duke of Cambridge, Prime Minister David Cameron and Lord Seb Coe in supporting the nationwide grassroots initiative, which looks to capture the nation’s peaked interest in sport following the London 2012 Olympic Games and encourage them to get involved in their own sporting communities. The boxers launch the campaign at Moss Side Boxing Club on August 17 and the following two days see over 5000 sporting events taking place in Manchester and across the country. In addition to launching the campaign on August 17, Luke and Nicola also help volunteers to redecorate the club, giving something back to local clubs, while inspiring others to take part.
