participate in sports in London"
When asked about the funding, the site designers and maintainers said
"this presents a great opportunity for RL and sport in London....we will
be be taking the sport to a whole new audience because of this grant"
On the subject of future plans they added
"our first job is to gather a bit more intelligence about what is
happening in the Internet community worldwide so our first task will be
to spend four weeks in the winter looking at how the Internet is used in
Australia and New Zealand to promote better access to sport".
