A True Olympic Legacy - What can businesses learn from Team GB

The last two weeks of Olympic action in Rio have caused sleepless nights right across Great Britain as we have all sought to follow the incredible exploits of our athletes and the amazing number of medals the team were able to achieve. 

Even the most loyal of Team GB supporters may have questioned the ability of the team to raise the bar once more after the team had truly excelled at their home games in London 2012 winning 65 medals which in itself represented a one third improvement on Beijing 2008. However, raise the bar they did coming home with 67 medals, a two medal improvement on London 2012 and with 27 gold medals, only 2 shy of the 29 achieved in that glorious summer of sport.  

London 2012 provided irrefutable evidence that Team GB were on the right track in terms of pre-games preparation and in games delivery but few commentators expected for this position to be improve once more in 2016 with Team GB being the first Olympic team to actually improve on the number of medals won immediately after hosting the Olympics on home turf.
