Well it’s all over. No more Olympics, no more Paralympics. Now, attention switches to the much-disputed ‘legacy’ of the Games. And lest we forget all the great things 2012 has done for London, there’s an ad campaign to remind us
Timed to coincide with the end of the Paralympics, the Greater London Authority has launched The Gifts of the Games, a poster campaign and website highlighting some of the benefits that 2012 has brought to London.
A museum commemorating all three of London’s Olympic Games will also pop up next to the Orbit.
Meet Jonnie Peacock and Stefanie Reid, the world class Paralympians going for gold at the 2012 Paralympic Games.
