Tony Blair’s Olympic hopes
After being widely credited with “winning if for Britain”, Mr Blair didn’t just hang up his trainers. He started his own Sports Foundation. Through that he has backed runners for the Great North Run and helped set up coaches in many sports, thus far only from around his old consituency base in the North East. Expect its influence to spread over the next two years.
With the Olympics just two years away what has this present government or even Brown’s three-year long administration done regarding encouraging sport in schools?
And answer came there none.

A recent comment from an Albanian, Mr Leonard Dedej from Tirana – “It takes big leaders to make the hardest turns in peoples life…mr Blair is a big leader and a great man for millions of people in Balkans!!!for stopping a savage war!about Iraq I believe that the press wherever it is has not the right to judge on this issue because it simply is to small to judge!!history will judge mr Blair!as long as it is an ongoing war no one can blame mr Blair,after all he started something for a big reason..the press its often wrong because it fights for audience!!!”
