Coventry track and field athletes and swimmers will be jetting off to the capital city of Taiwan - New Taipei for the 50th Annual International Children’s Games (ICG).
The 18 young athletes aged between 12-15, will be competing against over 1000 athletes from around the world.
The event, which will take place from July 11 – 16 2016, will include over 60 cities worldwide.
The games have always been used as a way of bringing young people together and building friendships.
Cllr John Mutton, chair of the Coventry International Children’s Games Committee, said: “We will be marking the 50th games. It has stood the test of time and I am really privileged to have been connected with the event for so many years.”
This is the 20th year that Cllr Mutton has raised the sponsorship to enable Coventry children to take part in the event.
Any companies or organisations who would be willing to help sponsor next year’s games in Lithuania, please contact Cllr John Mutton at the Council House at firstname.lastname@example.org
