Michaela Smith is from the Sportivate programme in Bucks told Mix 96 "Using the games to inspire a new generation of participants is absolutely one of the key things of the  legacy programmes. This is the first on that is being launched that is focusing particularly on participation legacy, rather than the athletes or facilities".
