On Monday 13th August, Leeds celebrated the homecoming of it's Olympic Athletes including the Brownlee Brothers and road race silver medalist Lizzie Armitstead.
4 young reporters were invited along to capture the highlights of the events as well as speaking to the Brownlee Brothers.
These young athletes all have inspiring stories to tell, which will hopefully encourage other young people to follow their sporting dreams.
This opportunity was made possible through Child Friendly Leeds.
Leeds will be a child-friendly city where the voices, needs and priorities of children and young people are heard and inform the way we make decisions and take action.’ Vision for Leeds 2011 to 2030
There are over 180,000 children and young people in Leeds. To become a child friendly city, and the best city for children and young people, their voices and views need to be heard and responded to, and that they are active participants in their local community and citywide.
