WHILE snow meant that sporting figures could not make a special event for children with an Olympic theme, coaches at Abbeycroft Leisure Centre in Bury St Edmunds filled the gap and gave 75 children the chance to try out different sports.

Go for Gold on Monday celebrated London 2012 with a Rwandan theme as Bury is hosting the Rwandan team and will be encouraging people to get behind the visiting athletes in the run up to and during the Olympics.

Children were able to taste athletics, basketball, combat kickboxing, unihoc, football and water polo. They were also were told about the pre games training camp and afterwards they were given certificates and goody bags at an Olympic themed award ceremony.
