21 for 21
21 Olympic and Paralympic athletes ahead of the Tokyo 2021 Olympic and Paralympic Games, in five different areas.
105 x 2minutes, by Anything But Footy, first aired 18th May 2021
For XS Manchester, Capital Scotland, Heart Yorkshire, Heart Hertfordshire, and Capital South Wales & Heart North Wales, Anything But Footy will produce 21 features involving local and diverse names – both new and familiar – from Team GB and Para GB, focusing on how easy it is to participate in sport highlighting both women’s sport and disability sport.
2020 was a wretched year for grassroots sport following lockdown and sport at a local level was wiped out. These features would use elite names to promote the importance of local sport.
