    Tess, I'm so glad that the BBC is taking the time to follow up on the whole Olympics experience... it's hard to believe that a whole year has gone by already. Have come across so many articles on the legacy of the Olympics like http://www.wonkie.com/2012/08/13/olympics-legacy/ but so few of them suggest the importance of coverage after the event - for me, it's a critical element of establishing the value and maintaining the national pride that was stimulated at the time.
