On April 21st The Bees Academy held a special event for the Mini Bees to mark the "100 Days To Go" until the 2012 London Olympic Games. The normal Saturday session was enhanced by the use of non-pressurised competitive events - held on the Home straight so the parents could give voice to their support for the youngsters. All children who were present were awarded a special medal. We were very fortunate to have 3-time Olympian Steve Backley available to present the medals (with the help of his two young daughters).
