School children create the largest human London 2012 Logo
A giant human London Olympic logo was created by 2,012 school children today at Collingwood College in Camberley, Surrey, UK
The Children covered over 1,800 square metres
Surrey County Council organised the event to celebrate the P&G Surrey School Games which encourages children to take part in sport.
Olympic rower Debbie Flood, GB Olympic trampoline hopeful Amanda Parker, LOCOG deputy chairman Sir Keith Mills and 1948 Surrey Olympic torchbearer Austin Playfoot joined the children on the field.
Helyn Clack, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Services and the 2012 Games, said: “Thousands of children created a slice of Olympic history right here in Surrey. The children were beaming with excitement as they took to the sports field to create the giant London 2012 logo.
“It’s going to be the most exciting year of sport this country has ever seen and events like this encourage more young people to get active. It may even inspire the next generation of Olympic and Paralympic athletes.”
Spectators also enjoyed a demonstration from Camberley Judo Club, a gymnastics spectacular by Collingwood College students and a display of 50 flags created by children from Surrey and across the world.
The 2012 P&G Surrey School Games was organised by Surrey County Council to get more young people involved in sport.
Last year, 1,900 people, mostly children, broke the world record for the largest human Olympic rings See here
