Thousands of people across the country took part in sporting events across the country on Saturday, August 24.

The free events were run by volunteer Games Makers, they were inspired by the London 2012 Olympics and aimed to get people active and build up support for Team GB for Tokyo 2020.

Ken said: "It was great fun and we had a good turn out and everyone got really involved, the participants wanted more.

"Building on the success of this event, we plan to organise more such events in Leighton Buzzard and Bedfordshire and its surrounding areas and get more people involved.

"I'm hoping to do more events in the town, we will try and do different sports as well next time.

"From the events we also gained two new Games Makers who are hoping to do their own events, Martin and Pele.

"We would like to thank all our donors and sponsors, and I Am Team GB, British Olympic Association, Toyota, Limelight Sports, Leighton Linslade Town Council, Molton Sports, British Basket League, and Tiddenfoot Leisure Centre.

"The next Nations Biggest Sports Day is on 29th of August 2020."
