Written by Hitmix News on 25 July 2022
The multi-sport event has previously been held in Manchester and Glasgow, while London hosted the Olympics in 2012. As part of their bids, all promised to leave a positive legacy – but did they deliver?
On the Sky News Daily podcast, host Niall Paterson speaks to Olympic gold medal winner Rebecca Adlington about being inspired by the sporting stars of the past, while we discuss the success of legacy plans both for sport and local communities with Aileen Campbell, CEO of Scottish Women’s Football, along with Paul Regan, who was involved with the Olympic bid as chair of London Citizens, and Sir Keith Mills, CEO of London 2012, who worked alongside Lord Coe to organise the Games.
