Olympic and Paralympians in theDelegations

Recommended Posts

On the London site they only list 12 famous olympic/paraolympic sports stars as going (plus David Beckham and Sven Goran Erikson).

Unlike the US, we're a bit short of Olympic champions - we tend to get just 1 or 2 per Olympic Games, not the 100's you get over there... :grinning:

Rowing legends Sir Steve Redgrave and Sir Matthew Pinsent will be joined by Paralympic stars Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson and Ade Adepitan, Australian Olympic heroine Cathy Freeman and triple jump world record holder Jonathan Edwards.

England skipper David Beckham and manager Sven-Goran Eriksson will also be present, alongside Football legend Sir Bobby Charlton.

High jumper Dalton Grant, hurdlers David Hemery and Colin Jackson, Sydney gold medallist Denise Lewis, Scottish Sailing gold medallist Shirley Robertson and double Olympic decathlon champion Daley Thompson complete the star-studded line up.
