I spent an evening in the company of Olympic and Paralympic athletes just before they compete in London 2012 as well as past GB champions dating back to 1948.
Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge ( William & Kate ) were also in attendance and there was a fully packed evening of entertainment.
Team GB and ParalympicsGB comprise 900 elite Olympic and Paralympic athletes selected by The British Olympic Association and the British Paralympic Association in partnership with the National Governing Bodies of the 46 sports (26 Olympic and 20 Paralympic) that will compete in London 2012.
Together, Team GB and ParalympicsGB at London 2012 are Our Greatest Team. There is no other sporting competition in which Great Britain and Northern Ireland field such a large, diverse and talented team to represent our nation with pride and excellence. With the vital home nation support of the whole of the UK behind them, Our Greatest Team will be 900 athletes, 60 million strong.
