Wallington and Cheam olympians at awards ceremony
Olympic and paralympic heroes will star in the West End next week.
London 2012 medallists David Weir and Joanna Rowsell will feature in the Balfour Beatty London Youth Games and Annual Awards ceremony celebrating London sport at all levels at BAFTA on September 10.
The evening also celebrates the success of each year’s London Youth Games, where record numbers of participants exceeding last year’s 104,000 are expected to be revealed.
Volunteers, coaches and competitors from fourteen London boroughs have been shortlisted for awards. Five world-class athletes will also be inducted into the Hall of Fame on the evening.
Among an expected crowd of around 250 on the evening will be senior London and UK politicians, stars of London sport, representatives of London boroughs and representatives of sporting governing bodies.
London Youth Games Chairman Anthony Kendall said: "Congratulations to all those who have been shortlisted for this year’s Balfour Beatty London Youth Games Hall of Fame and Annual Awards.
"It was so important that we seized upon the momentum of London 2012 to help create a meaningful sporting legacy. Thanks to all those thousands of Londoners who have contributed as volunteers, teachers, competitors, parents, coaches and team managers we have lots to celebrate on another record-breaking year for the London Youth Games."
The Balfour Beatty London Youth Games is Europe’s largest annual youth sports event, featuring teams from 33 London boroughs taking part in 85 competitions across 33 sports on 27 event days. Wandsworth collected the Jubilee Trophy as the overall winning borough in 2013.
