Record Breaking series finishes in the Olympic park

Published:

The 9th Tata - Kids of Steel series ended at the Olympic Park, with a record breaking finale.

Throughout the series, attendance records have been broken at 6 of the venues, with almost 10,000 children taking part across the ten events.

With events spread around the British Isles, visiting the North of England, Scotland, Wales and finishing in London, it shows how the Olympic Legacy really is live and kicking, and not just in the Queen Elizabeth park.

Over 1,000 children took part in the Olympic finale, swimming in the Aquatic centre that saw medals won by Tom Daley and Rebecca Addlington, and after a short run, biking and running to finish in front of the Olympic stadium and in the shadow of the iconic Orbit tower. This was certainly no ordinary school day and many lifelong memories will have been made.

As if the event in the Olympic park was not enough, the children were also treated to a visit by Paralympic star Lauren Steadman (who swam in the Paralympics in 2012), and the later starters were able to watch Tom Daley who was being put through a rigorous training session at the venue.
