Olympic Legacy: Interest in Leicester Triathlon Club rising thanks to 2012 Games
Leicester Triathlon Club noticed a big upsurge in inquiries during the Olympics.
The club, which has 250 members, helped Triathlon England run a stand at the big screen in Humberstone Gate during the men's and women's triathlon events.
It included the chance for members of the public to try out an endless pool – where they could swim or exercise against a broad, deep current.
Club secretary Samantha Rankin said: "We had about 50 or so inquiries during the Olympics which led to 10 or 15 people joining the club."

She said: "The Supersprint is achievable and you don't need to have a particularly swanky bike."
