BPA Sports Fest 2013 programme

BPA Sports Fest Sheffield covers

Legacy Sport Media’s latest publication for the British Paralympic Association is the programme for this weekend’s ParalympicsGB Sports Fest, which takes place  at the English Institute of Sport, Sheffield, 26-27 April 2013. Aimed at potential athletes who have been inspired by the London 2012 Paralympic Games, the British Paralympic Association’s ParalympicsGB Sports Fests are free events offering disabled people the chance to try out over 20 different sports, find out how to get involved, and meet some of our incredible Paralympic medal winners!

The 48-page programme includes a gatefold cover with schedules and floorplans, highlights of the 2012 Games with quotes from some of the stars, details of how to explore disability sport and find a local club, plus pages devoted to every one of the 25 Summer and Winter Paralympic disciplines. It has been a very rewarding job to work on, and we hope this and future Sports Fest events are a roaring success.

R&R #69 – April 2013

R&R April contents

We’re proud to announce that the April 2013 issue of Rowing & Regatta, published by Legacy Sport Media on behalf of British Rowing, is out now! R&R #69 is our 69th issue of the magazine, which is now distributed to 30,000+ British Rowing members.

Traditionally marking the start to the summer river rowing season, 2013’s extended winter put paid to two major events – easterly winds on the Tideway forced the cancellation of both the 2013 Head of the River Race and the Vesta Veterans’ Head. Fortunately the Women’s Head and Junior Head both took place: but our event coverage certainly didn’t end there!

The annual Oxford vs Cambridge Boat Race was bigger than ever this year – but as usual, R&R’s coverage went deeper than that: not just the Isis vs Goldie Reserve Race, but also the women and lightweights at the Henley Boat Races (this year, on the Olympic course at Eton Dorney!), and the Vets’ Boat Race, contested the day before the main event along part of the same route and the only Cambridge victory this year.

Meanwhile, following the most successful Olympic campaign ever, the GB Rowing Team were back in action too. Sydney, Australia, hosted the first World Cup of the season – and in some of the first glimpses of potential Rio 2016 combinations, the Brits returned with seven medals including four golds. Fantastic photography, some of the best being from Team GB’s Pete Reed in the run-up to the contest, really helped brighten up an otherwise wintry looking issue!

With the addition of news, letters, coaching, technique, nutrition, history, classifieds, a monthly calendar and more, even this unavoidably report-heavy issue is a well-rounded publication. Check it out on iTunes for iPhone and iPad, also available on Android for mobiles and tablets, or online via your browser as Rowing & Regatta Digital.
