Olympics with a difference.

ABOUT 100 young people will be taking part in the Alternative Olympics in Coventry next week.

It will be held at Woodlands Academy, in Broad Lane, Tile Hill, from 12.30-6pm and will include a range of games, from an obstacle course and dodgeball to rhythmic gymnastics. It will end with a roller disco.

Participants, who will all be graduates of the government's National Citizen Service scheme, will represent eight different countries.

It has been organised by The Challenge Network, one of the major providers of NCS.

The scheme aims to help young people contribute more to their community by offering them voluntary and social activities.
