While August’s Closing Ceremony might mark the end of this year’s Rio 2016 Olympic Games it will not spell the end for a summer of a sport.
Instead the nation will have the chance to be a part of something special on Saturday 27 August with the UK’s biggest ever sports day – I Am Team GB.
There’s something for everyone from yoga to archery, Parkrun to swimming as thousands of clubs across the UK open their doors for free! What’s more, our returning Olympic hero’s will be taking part too, at events all over the UK, to celebrate their homecoming from Rio.
I Am Team GB is organised by The National Lottery and ITV, celebrating the role the nation plays in Team GB’s success through the support they give elite athletes by playing The National Lottery. Over £80million has been raised each year by National Lottery players to help fund elite athletes during the four-year build up to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
