Olympic gold medallist to visit Isle of Wight

A double Olympic gold medallist is to visit the Isle of Wight this weekend.

Sarah Gosling (nee Webb) - who has won gold medals in the Keelboat (Yngling) class at the 2004 Olympics in Athens and the 2008 event in Beijing - will be opening the local community multi-sport facility adiZone.

The opening ceremony is set to take place on Sunday (August 15th 2010) at the Sandham Gardens in Sandown, with the facility planned to be open all year round.

Also being opened on the day are the Fort Multi Play Courts and the Fort Play Park.

The adiZone will give both island locals and visitors to the Isle of Wight the opportunity to use a climbing wall, football goals, basketball hoops and an outdoor gym.

It will be the 50th adiZone to be opened in the UK and has been developed by sporting goods manufacturer Adidas and created with funding from the Small Rural Towns Project and the Isle of Wight Community Safety Partnership.
