Good luck message from Leader of Leeds City Council to Team GB athletes at Rio 2016 Paralympic Games

Councillor Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council, said:

“We would like to wish Team GB and all our Leeds and Yorkshire athletes the very best of luck in the Rio Paralympic Games.

“We cannot wait to see them perform on one of the world’s biggest sporting stages, and as always all of our local athletes can be guaranteed of tremendous support from the Leeds and Yorkshire public.

“A special Yorkshire homecoming event is of course being held in Leeds on September 28 which will be a fantastic way in which to recognise and congratulate all of our Paralympic and Olympic athletes on their performances in Rio.”
