Holly Hunt attends #IAmTeamGB, The Nation's Biggest Sports Day event

Holly Hunt - Nations Sports Day

Holly Hunt was invited to attend #IAmTeamGB, The Nations Biggest sports day which was hosted at Westfield London on Saturday 24 August 2019.

The Nations Biggest Sports Day was created by Team GB to help more people become active, with sports clubs and facilities all over the country play host to the one day event.

Senior international Hunt, who made her GB debut against China earlier this year, headed over to Westfield, London for the event.

Speaking after the day, she said: "The I Am Team GB event at Westfield, London was a great experience which I was really glad to be a part of. 

"There were lots of fun and free activities going on for all ages and abilities, including switch (a sport I hadn't heard of before but was very enjoyable) as well as Bollywood dancing, yoga and box fit. I even got to play tennis with a two-and-a-half-year-old!

"This summed the day up nicely for me because it was all about getting members of the public of any age involved with physical activity and promoting participation in sport within the local community. 

"It was fantastic to see so many volunteers and Games Makers from the London Olympics helping out with the event. Without them occasions like this wouldn't be able to go ahead as they contribute so much in terms of inspiring people to get involved in sport as well as giving something back to their local area.

"I thoroughly enjoyed chatting to a couple of Games Makers who shared stories from when they volunteered at London 2012 and that was truly amazing.

"I felt privileged to be involved in the event with incredible athletes such as Laura Kenny and Chloe Rogers and loved being part of the Nation's Biggest Sports Day!'
