Yorkshire\'s Olympic Heroes


    This is the incredible story of Yorkshire's 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Athletes. If Yorkshire had entered as a country in its own right - it would have been placed 12th on the medal table. This is the story of how Yorkshire athletes lit up London 2012. What made the county's Olympians so successful at their home Games and how their tales of triumph as a collective took on national interest? It offers a close look at how the 11 athletes won medals at London 2012, including the story of all seven of Yorkshire's Olympic champions. It comes with quotes and reaction from each athlete's dramatic day of glory, from Jessica Ennis to the all-conquering Brownlee brothers. It also looks at the roads they took to London 2012, and what set them apart from the rest of the field. Plus, a look at the county's successful Paralympic athletes.
