Team GB searches for team cheerleaders

13 July 2012 / 10:05

Team GB has today launched a hunt to find Britain’s best cheerleading squad to become the Team GB cheerleaders in the final run-up to and during the Games.

With just 14 days until the Greatest Show on Earth comes to London, the Team GB Cheerleaders will be used to galvanise the support of the nation at the Team GB football friendly against Brazil in Middlesbrough on Friday (20th July).

During the Games, the Team GB cheerleaders will be used to make appearances at official live sites and rouse the crowds at the Olympic Park.

The search for the cheerleaders comes after Team GB announced a selection of celebrity ambassadors including Dermot O’Leary, Edith Bowman, David Walliams, Katherine Jenkins, Mel C, Will Young, Bear Grylls, Davina McCall, Eddie Izzard, Reggie Yates and Alesha Dixon, who are on a campaign to create the greatest support an Olympic team has ever had.

How to enter:

Cheerleading squads that want the chance to represent Team GB are asked to:

1)     Visit the Team GB Facebook page and post a video of themselves performing (please keep the video below 5 minutes)

2)     Invite all of their fans and followers to like and comment on the video – this stage is open until Monday 16th at 12:00 noon GMT

3)     Five videos will be shortlisted by Team GB  which will then appear on MSN UK for a public vote which is a chance to sway the judges ahead of their final decision

The top videos will be judged by the Great British public and one of Team GB’s celebrity ambassadors before a winner is selected and announced.
