‘Olympic legacy patchy but palpable in north-east’ | M. Neill- British Future

Even if the huge arenas and sporting venues at the Olympic Village are dismantled or used for less enthralling purposes, the individual experiences, like mine and my peers from NE-Generation are the real, long-lasting outcomes of the Olympic Games. This is the most powerful thing that a major event such as the Olympics can achieve. In the north-east we should not be disappointed by a false perception that we were forgotten, but rather disappointed that we could not and did not have access to more opportunities that sprung from Olympic funding.
