Official London 2012 airline partner British Airways has asked a number of Team GB and Paralympics GB athletes about their holiday plans post September 2012. Far from having a relaxing break, the results showed that many of the athletes will be seeking sun and fun, following weeks and months of gruelling schedules. Nearly a third of athletes (28%) are planning a trip to America, with Las Vegas and Orlando among the top cities. In second place is Brits’ favourite Spain, with 13% of athletes planning a break to the mainland and its islands, with Ibiza topping the list – and just in time for the closing parties! In joint third place are Australia, Greece and Thailand preferred destinations for their sunshine, beaches, sports activities, great food and culture. Some of the more unusual destinations included Lithuania, Cuba and the less far-flung… Scotland! The findings also revealed that theres no rest for some athletes, with 4% planning an active ski or snowboarding holiday.
