Olympic triathlon stars Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee returned to a warm welcome in their home town of Horsforth today to open a new community centre named after them and local paralympic hero David Stone.
The brothers, who took gold and bronze at the London games, rode into town to meet fans and supporters. It's hoped the centre will encourage more youngsters to get involved in sport especially cycling. And it comes just a day after it was announced Yorkshire will host stages of the Tour de France.
Aa lot has been talked about the legacy of the London Olympics. Would it really encourage youngsters to take up sport, and inspire the next generation of Olympians?
If you wanted a great example of the positive effect of the games, you should have been in Bingley last night, as triathlon Gold and Bronze medallists Alistair and Jonny Brownlee went back to their roots.
Olympic champion Alistair Brownlee has confirmed he has had to go to hospital for the first time - to have his appendix removed.
The triathlon gold medallist, from Bramhope, near Leeds, said he was taken ill as he travelled to catch a flight to Brazil last week. After first consulting with his doctor father Keith, he was rushed to Leeds General Infirmary where he had to have his appendix removed in a routine operation.
He took to Twitter to thank his father for the advice and the NHS for his treatment.
Alistair and Jonny Brownlee have joined former Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies in Leeds to keep alive the sporting enthusiasm following the Olympics. They're travelling around the region to encourage more people to take on sports following their Olympic success.
Several members of Team GB, including Sheffield's Jessica Ennis, Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee and Nicola Adams, have been involved in making their own music video to mark their success at the Olympic Games.
The video shows the athletes in the Olympic Park miming along to Queen's "Don't stop me now". You can see the full video here.
