WITH fewer than 1,000 until the London 2012 Olympic Games, youngsters have been asked what it means to them.

To mark the occasion, youngsters aged five to 19 were asked to transform an Olympic ring into something inspiring on Saturday, as part of the council's Go Gravesham campaign.

Held at Meapa gymnastics centre, one of the two sites ear-marked as official pre-training camps in the borough, entries were collected and a winner will be announced on December 3, 1,000 days ahead of the Paralympics.

Meapa coach Yuriy Zhoytyuk said: "We're really excited - it's a once in a lifetime opportunity. It's fantastic for young people to see the Games coming to London, and see their home town benefit too.

"The competition is a great way for everyone to get involved and remember this event.
