On track 4 gold
15 September 24 to September 2006
The quest to find the nation's most popular Olympian gets off the starting block at the Museum of London Docklands in London on Wednesday 13th September 2006.
'On Track 4 Gold,' is an externally produced exhibition hosted by the Museum in Docklands. It celebrates Britain's heritage in track and field from Athens 1896 to Athens 2004.
The 'On Track 4 Gold' exhibition will feature 15 stunning back drops illustrating the growth of a multicultural society in London since 1948, as well as pictures, information boards and life-size cut outs of athletes.
Jak Bubeula-Dodd, Director of On Track 4 Gold said:
"Because London is such a rich city of diverse people and cultures this was a major factor in the capital becoming the first city to be awarded the Olympic games 3 times.
"In the run up to the forth coming London games in 2012 (London 2012), On Track 4 Gold has been created to raise public awareness about Britain's past Olympic heritage and London's diverse history spanning the first London games in 1908 right up to the present day (1948 London Olympics.
We're looking forward to revealing who young Londoners think is the 'best among the best' of British talent in the world's most exciting sporting event."
