The Mayor of London is supporting Panathlon through the the Sports Legacy Plan for London.
The Mayor’s Sport Commissioner Kate Hoey congratulated winning teams at the event. Kate Hoey said: “ With the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games fast approaching, Panathlon is exactly the kind of initiative that we should all be getting behind. It brings real, competitve sport to those who might otherwise have missed out on involvement. The Mayor and I are both committed to getting as many young people as possible involved in sport. Events like this show that disability need not be any obstacle to participation. Panathlon deserve huge praise for what it is doing.”
