There are only 206 days until the start of the 2012 London Olympic Games and 239 days for the start of the Paralympic Games. Over the next few months I’m sure it’ll be easy to get caught up in the media hype with most politicians, business types, media moguls and the like wanting to cash-be associated in some way with this fantastic showcase of some of the worlds greatest Sporting champions.
Hartlepool Borough Council have recognised that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to ‘inspire’ a generation to take part, and excel in sport and recreation. To this end they have launched their own Inspire Exhibition which showcases the wealth of female sporting superstars in the town including our club’s very own Amy Jorgeson (nee Coulson) – See above.
These posters will be featured across the town, the local art gallery and of course the local schools. On top of this, the athletes may be visiting the local schools to talk to students and ‘inspire’ them to get involved and perhaps even running training sessions for the students!
I hope you’ve all had a great Christmas and New Year break.
All Karate classes at Belle Vue re-start from Friday 6th January and Owton Manor re-start from Monday 9th January. Throston After School re-starts from Friday 13th January.
We’ve also got a Start of Year Course on Saturday 16th January at Belle Vue Sports Centre, 12-3pm, £5.00. Open to all club members. – This is a great way of getting rid of the cob webs from the holidays.
