London Olympic Games only inspired one in five people 'to take part in more sports'

London, Jan. 10 (ANI): The Olympic Games in London failed to inspire people to take part in more sports, a new poll has found.

The survey found that the Games inspired fewer than one in five people to take part in more sport.

It also found that just 16 percent of women and 10 percent of those aged above 55 were inspired to participate in more sporting activities by London 2012, the Daily Star reports.

Over half of the Britons, 56 percent, felt there is too much media coverage of football and not enough of other sports.

Only 35 percent have noticed an increase in non-football sports stories since the Games finished. (ANI)
