HOW THE WHITE ROSE ATHLETES LIT UP LONDON 2012

NICK WESTBY


GREAT NORTHERN BOOKS


Olympians from Yorkshire made a huge impact on a memorable London 2012. Of the 65 medals the host nation won, 12 of them were forged in Yorkshire. The success of people like Jessica Ennis, the Brownlee brothers and Nicola Adams captured the imagination of the British public.
Combined with other athletes from the county who produced extraordinary feats to fulfil lifetime ambitions, the story of the success of White Rose athletes developed into one of the many feelgood stories of the entire Olympic and Paralympic summer. For the people of Yorkshire it became a great source of pride that their heroes were flying the flag so triumphantly on the biggest stage of all.
In Yorkshire’s Olympic Heroes Nick Westby celebrates the achievements of the county’s medallists at London 2012, and looks into what made them tick, how they reached the podium and why as a collective, Yorkshire’s finest did so well.
