2012 Olympian Ambassadors

Dec 2011

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will work together with some of Britain’s most accomplished Olympians as Ambassadors for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The young Royals will play an important role in encouraging and inspiring the British public to actively support the nation’s athletes at the London 2012 Games.

In a message of support for the 2012 Games and in his role as an Ambassador, The Duke of Cambridge commented:

“Catherine, Harry and I are honoured to be Ambassadors for Team GB and Paralympics GB.  London hosting the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will inspire so many people – particularly the young – to be the best they can be.  We are hugely looking forward to this incredible sporting competition, but are also looking beyond next summer’s Games to the springboard it will provide for future success and excellence.  The athletes and coaches taking part in the Team GB Ambition Programme are part of that future success – potential medal winners and sources of inspiration to come.  We hope they enjoy the experience of London 2012 to the full, and learn from it how to become successful British Olympians of the future.
