Our aim is to recruit and develop 2,012 leaders and coaches and promote the Olympic and Paralympic values.
This exciting project captures the spirit of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and its values and will unify a number of exciting new initiatives to help create 2012 new coaching and sports leadership opportunities.
Mission Possible has been granted Inspire Mark, the badge of the London 2012 Inspire Programme, which recognises innovative and exceptional projects that are directly inspired by the 2012 Games.
