In a special report for tonight's edition of The Lobby on ITV1, Gareth Owen has been asking what needs to be done to convert the Olympic and Paralympic spirit into permanent change.
Britian's amazing summer of sport is now beind us. But for many, this is where the hard work really starts; delivering the "legacy" we've heard so much about.
The organisers want the Olympic experience to inspire more of us to take up sport. But while there is no shortage of enthusiasm at the moment ... will it last? Can the country become more active? The Lobby will be broadcast on ITV1 at 11:35pm tonight.
