Olympics - Inspire A Generation Fail

BBC News - Olympics has not boosted school sport, survey suggests

80% of parents say the amount of PE and games in UK schools has not increased.
A message on the youth legacy section of the London 2012 website says: "Since it won the bid to host the Games, London 2012 has worked closely with partners and stakeholders on activation programmes to promote sports participation in the run-up to, during and after the Games.
General secretary of the National Union of Teachers, Christine Blower, said the Olympic Legacy was alive and well and being nurtured by our PE teachers.

Leaving the Olympic legacy in the hands of the knuckle-dragging mouth breathers who are only kept from roaming the streets in brown shirts by being employed as PE teachers was always going to be a glorious failure. Thank goodness.
