Nutri Lions…. An Olympic Legacy

The London Lions Basketball Team were the first professional sports team to move to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park following on from the 2012 games. They play their home games at the 7000 seater Copper Box Arena.

The Nutri Troops were founded by GB Volleyball Player Peter Bakare who represented Team GB at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Peter studied animation at Sheffield Hallam University and went on to write a script for Channel 4’s Skins.

London Lions and Nutri Troops came together to form the Nutri Lions a programme for schools to help encourage children to play basketball, have fun and eat more healthily.
