Fans of Team GB have the chance to rekindle the spirit of 2012 as the Mayor’s Fund for London and Lord and Lady Fink present a one-of-a-kind photo exhibition showing the moment each British medal was won at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Each image, captured by Getty, is signed by the medallist and will be on public display in this free exhibition, supported by Team GB, from 10th-26th July.
The “2012 Team GB Glory Moments” display will be at London’s City Hall, The Queen’s Walk, London SE1 2AA. The exhibition is open Monday to Friday, from 9am-5.30pm, admission is free.
The photos capture a snapshot of the moment a dream was realised, the moment years of hard work, determination, power and precision paid off and contributed to Our Greatest Team’s greatest Olympic medal haul in over 100 years.
Never before has a full set of official, signed Olympic images been assembled in this way and the collection’s owners, Lord and Lady Fink, have generously partnered with the Mayor’s Fund for London to host the first exhibition.
Team GB finished third in the medal table at the London 2012 Olympic Games with an incredible tally of 65 medals and this exhibition allows the public to relive the feeling of that glorious summer of sport.
The Mayor’s Fund for London exists to give young Londoners the skills and opportunities to get a good job. It helps disadvantaged young Londoners escape the threat of poverty and play a full part in London’s future as the greatest city on Earth, following through on the London 2012 Olympic Games’ pledge to ‘Inspire a Generation’.
The British Olympic Association’s Chairman, Lord Coe, said: “This exhibition gives the public a unique chance to relive those wonderful medal-winning moments all over again.
“I would like to thank Lord and Lady Fink, who are generous donors to the BOA, The Mayor’s Fund for London and City Hall for hosting the exhibition. These photos perfectly capture the emotion felt at the precise moment of winning a treasured Olympic medal and the pride we all felt in Team GB’s performance at the Games.
“With exhibitions such as this the BOA is working to keep that Olympic spirit alive and to continue inspiring generations to come. The Mayor’s Fund for London’s work does exactly this. It is the embodiment of our London Olympic motto and the BOA is proud to have worked with them on this project.
“The London 2012 Olympic Games saw children across the country inspired by the performances of Team GB’s athletes and engaging with Olympic sport. I hope this free exhibition will encourage more children to see these fantastic photographs and sustain the spirit of 2012.”
The Mayor’s Fund for London is a registered charity, no 1124833.
