Horse jumps designed by Greenwich children have gone on display at Woolwich Town Hall.
School kids from across the borough have come up with ideas for Greenwich themed jumps that will feature in the cross country course in Greenwich Park at next year's Olympics.
The exhibition of entries will run throughout August, giving members of the public the chance to vote on which designs they like the most. The most popular ideas will then be considered by a judging panel which will include council leader, Chris Roberts, and Lord Coe.
The children behind the successful ideas will work with Ravensbourne architecture students to turn the drawings into workable models before being handed over to the course builders.
Leader of Greenwich Council, Cllr Chris Roberts, said: “We’ve worked hard to get our school children engaged with the Games and it was fantastic to see how inspired they were by the test events. Using that inspiration to design part of an Olympic cross country course is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Millions will be watching the events next year and will see the Greenwich jump designed by our school children.”
Seb Coe, LOCOG Chair, said: ‘I’m delighted that Greenwich schools have embraced this opportunity... I can’t wait to see the jumps in situ next summer’.
