Children's Olympics

In a bid to enthuse the children of Britain, and their parents, about the 2012 London Olympics the government has set up a children's Olympics.

The first event will be held in Glasgow between 7th-10th September, it will feature sports such as athletics, swimming and gymnastics.

Olympics Minister Tessa Jowell, who has recently hit the headlines for other matters, said:

"This will be a fantastic celebration of sport for young people, and a real legacy for generations."

Other cities will be encouraged to hold similar events to Glasgow, which will receive £1.5 million from the Millennium Commission.
