Kindle Olympic flame at home

EVEN the most hardy of cynics appear to have thawed, slightly at least, since the Olympic flame was lit in London.

The spectacle, which is pretty much impossible to avoid, is at the centre of many conversations in the street, on internet chat rooms and on social media websites.

It is hard to argue it has been anything other than a success.

The fact it is all happening here, on our doorstep, is no doubt a contributory factor to the positive press the Games are enjoying.

But of further inspiration to the nation must surely be the magnificent achievements of Team GB athletes.

The medal count so far is nothing short of amazing, reflecting the thousands of hours of training, pain and tears endured by our nation’s finest.

They represent wonderful role models to the next generation of sports people; and give as clear an indication as is possible that dreams can come true.

Today we publish details of how members of the public can get involved in Olympic sports in South Cumbria.

There are many disciplines to chose from, and with the health benefits there for all to see, there really should be no reason for people not to get involved.

Every world-beating athlete started their career with a dream.

Why not start yours now?
