YOUNGSTERS inspired by Olympic golden girl Jessica Ennis and other London 2012 athletes are being encouraged to follow in their footsteps with free sports sessions as part of Join In Local Sport, writes Graham Walker.

The government backed Olympic legacy charity, which helped Jess on the road to golden glory and is developing the stars of the future, wants to get as many people as possible to join in at their local sports venues on August 18 and 19 - the first weekend between the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Olympians and Paralympians will be on hand at some venues where sport began for them, to highlight the role of local sports clubs in the making of champions.
