Katarina Johnson-Thompson joins The Anfield Wrap to discuss the Nike x LFC Foundation initiative 'Game On', as well as the Olympics & Liverpool FC.

Game On was set up to help youngsters from marginalised communities access more sporting and coaching opportunities, and John Gibbons finds out more.
'Game On will support young people aged seven to 12 from marginalised communities – specifically children from the Black and Asian community, girls and children of all abilities – by providing them with opportunities to become members of local, diverse sports clubs and play a variety of sports, including boxing, tennis, cricket, athletics, basketball, cycling, gymnastics and much more.
'The programme will also involve the creation of a new coaching academy, which will inspire participants to play and coach sports, creating opportunities for a lifelong pathway. The academy will also have a specific focus on recruiting from marginalised communities to help remove any barriers to sport that may exist.
'LFC Foundation will mentor the coaches and provide them with work experience and training opportunities across Liverpool Football Club and through local grassroots clubs.'
