” The 2012 Panathlon is much improved with evenly matched teams ! The competitors really enjoy Panathlon and they get really excited as they get so much out of it. Its a very good social event where different boroughs get to meet lots of different people. We select children that are not eligible for London Youth Games as Panathlon is more appropriate for their disability and their needs. Every year they go back from Panathlon with smiles and medals and they talk to their parents about it. Some of our children this is the only competition they take part in each year. The Volunteers and Young Leaders have been excellent as well.” Team Leader Tower Hamlets.
