On 19 April 2012, the Sports Heritage Network is holding its first conference. Co-organised by the University of Southampton, De Montfort University, and the World Rugby Museum, this prestigious event will be held at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. I’ve been invited to give one of the keynote talks, which will be on London’s Olympic history. Other keynote speakers include Jonathan Edwards, Olympic triple jump gold medallist and a member of the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games, while broadcaster John Inverdale will chair proceedings. Speakers will come from the worlds of sport, broadcasting, business, politics, and universities, and will include Sir Menzies Campbell, Guin Batten, Christopher Martin-Jenkins, Liz McColgan, Henry Olonga, and Tony Collins.
