AUDIO: Plymouth poet visits Olympic Park to see her work displayed
A Plymouth poet who was chosen by the National Lottery to write a poem celebrating the London 2012 games has visited the Olympic Park to see her work displayed.
Katy Else was one of the ‘12 Poets of 2012’ who jointly wrote an athlete inspired poem which forms part of the National Lottery’s showcasing plot in the Olympic Park.
Before coming together to share their ideas, the poets each met an Olympic hopeful to learn about what it takes to become a full time elite athlete, with Katy attending a training session with diver Peter Waterfield.

Katy saw the nine totems on which the poem has been displayed during the Olympics and Paralympics and was joined by Alan Dedicoat, the famous voice of the National Lottery Draw Show, who recorded the final piece.
She said: “The whole experience of meeting Peter and then working with other poets from around the country has been amazing. Hearing the poem which I helped write being read out on the Olympic Park and knowing that so many people from around the world will have heard it to really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
“Peter made me see just how much dedication and sacrifice it takes to become an Olympian and I hope that this shines through in the poem.”
The poem was created to celebrate National Lottery players’ unique contribution to both the sporting and cultural side of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
