The eight-part series will broadcast highlights of a different sport each episode, with interviews with a large number of Team GB’s victorious athletes.
Eurosport is dedicating a week of coverage to the London 2012 Olympic Games at the end of this month (24-31 May), showcasing the key moments from Team GB’s record-breaking Olympic success.
The broadcaster, which is the official broadcaster for Tokyo 2020, is covering the best of the Olympics via a daily highlights show across an eight-episode series.
Each show will air at 2pm and be repeated at 7pm on Eurosport 2 and Eurosport Player.
Eurosport has teamed up with an roster of GB athletes to provide in-depth insight and retrospective interviews. This includes Sir Bradley Wiggins, Lizzie Deignan, Sir Chris Hoy, Jo Rowsell, Beth Tweddle, Max Whitlock, Kristian Thomas, Tom Daley, Rebecca Adlington, Adam Peaty, Kath Grainger, Helen Glover, Greg Searle, Jade Jones, Gemma Gibbons and Anthony Ogogo.
Super Saturday heroes Greg Rutherford and Sir Mo Farah will also relive the memorable night when Team GB secured three gold medals in 48 minutes in the Olympic Stadium.
Orla Chennaoui will host Eurosport’s coverage, which begins at the start with Danny Boyle’s iconic Opening Ceremony. Each day will then have a different sporting theme.
She said: “As a journalist, London 2012 was one of the greatest sporting events I’ve had the pleasure of covering and I am thrilled to be involved in re-living some of the biggest moments once again. Having so many of the medallists discuss the defining moments of their careers and the legacy the Games has left, is incredibly exciting for me personally and I’m sure for Eurosport viewers.”
Jamie Steward, senior director of Eurosport UK, added: “We’re delighted to bring UK audiences the opportunity to relive the special moments from London 2012. By complementing highlights of the historic Games with exclusive interviews from the heroes of Team GB, we hope sports fans across the country will relive the special summer and experience the feel-good factor felt eight years ago.”
