At Atone, we have worked hard to create a range of enzyme supplements that work as catalysts to ensure the cells within our body are performing at their best. A Catalyst is defined in the dictionary as ‘a person or thing that precipitates an event or change‘. It seems appropriate and timely then, to take a few moments to consider the London 2012 Olympics, and what their catalytic effect will be – apparently the subject on the minds of many people in The UK, not least East Londoners. It’s what has been coined The Olympic Legacy and it’s something that London organisers have put great emphasis on. On their official website they explain that ‘Right from the very beginning of our bid in 2003, London 2012 has been about what can be achieved through the inspiration and power of sport, using it as a catalyst for positive change and inspiration.‘ What will this change and inspiration bring?
I think it’s fair to say that these Olympic Games have been a resounding success and they really were embraced by even the most sceptical of us! There had been an underlying fear that it would be a thankless hassle especially for London workers and residents — which, certainly on the whole, it was anything but — and with the amazing success of Team GB there was no holding the enthusiasm of the nation back! But what about after The Paralympic Games come to an end? They’ve outlined what the plans are for the grounds such as the renaming of The Olympic Park to The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, which they enthuse both elite athletes and the local community will be able to access, in which to train and play. The Village accommodation will be converted into thousands of new homes for sale and rent — half of those available will be affordable housing. They say that ‘along with a new educational campus, a community health centre and new developments elsewhere within the Park, the Village – to be known as East Village – will form a whole new community in this part of east London.’
As an East London resident myself, and with Atone HQ a mere stone’s throw from The Olympic site, I really hope these ambitious intentions ring true in the near future. If it works as they’ve planned it, it will be an immense, and much needed, addition to this part of London. With the genuine enthusiasm felt nation-wide for The Games over all, I think there’s a big chance the site will be used wisely — and treasured — much in the way a true legacy should be.
However, after this current and brief interlude, we do still have The Paralympics to come from 29th August — 9th September, which is sure to be another phenomenal success and seems already to be very eagerly anticipated. In many ways The Paralympics are even more incredible, regarding the competitor’s achievements, in the face of obstacles most of us can only imagine. With tickets selling out super fast, waste no time in searching online, for your chance to get a final glimpse of these awe-inspiring athletes.
At Atone we cannot compete with The Olympics nor the athletes, but if you need a catalytic boost of another kind from East London, check out our range of enzyme supplements.
