At our Annual Lecture on Tuesday 9 April we heard from Lord Seb Coe, described as THE "Games Maker" of London 2012. He gave us a fascinating insight into what he believes to be the legacy of the Games - both to the UK and the wider world.
We were enormously privileged that Lord Coe agreed to come and speak to the Society and give us his own personal view of the Games that many think has 'changed perceptions of Britain'.
Not one, but two Olympians
And if one Olympian wasn’t enough, Lord Coe was interviewed by Olympic champion, current triple-jump world record holder and Athlete Representative for the London 2012 Games, Jonathan Edwards.
A private Dinner followed the Lecture, and gave guests the opportunity to ask Lord Coe and Jonathan Edwards further questions about the Games and their sporting careers. View who attended here.
