2012 was a massive sporting year for Great Britain as it hosted the Olympic and Paraympic Games for the first time in most of our lifetimes.
Team Bath hosted a series of celebrations in the build-up to the Games at the Sports Training Village, where people had the opportunity to try out a new sporting challenge and find out more about our contribution to the global sporting extravaganza.
These were organised in conjunction with the Gold Challenge, which is the UK’s first Olympic and Paralympic sport-based charity challenge and is part of the London 2012 legacy programme.
