A proper legacy to inspire a generation

The first Plaid Cymru presser of the new term was hosted by Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood and Assembly member Bethan Jenkins. The main theme was the need to build on the legacy left to Wales by the Olympics and the Paralympics.

We want to ensure that the inspiration from the Olympic games' success lives on. We want the Welsh Government to take the lead in capitalising in the renewed interest in sport. Small , simple , effective action will now reap rewards for generations to come.

The Olympic and Paralympic Games could be the kick start for the transformation of people's activity levels and the Welsh Government must grab this opportunity with both hands. The Scottish and Northern Irish Governments have all announced far-reaching initiatives to ensure their long lasting legacy. Wales cannot afford to be left behind.

– Leader of Plaid Cymru, Leanne Wood AM
  • Plaid also say they would like to see a dedicated Sports Minister that could inspire youngsters to oversee policy and increase participation in sport.
