The former 200m and 400m sprinter, who won four Olympic gold medals for the United States, will share his tips for sporting success at the White Hart Lane Community Sports Centre, one of the programme’s flagship sites.

Joining him will be Tottenham Hotspur and England striker Darren Bent, who will also be giving advice to youngsters.

Johnson is appearing as an ambassador for Beyond Sport, an initiative which seeks to identify, celebrate and support inspirational projects, people and organisations around the world which drive positive change through sport.

Barclays Spaces for Sports is a partner to Beyond Sport, and recently hosted the judging of the Beyond Sport Awards 2009 at Barclays global head office in London. Over 265 entries were received from more than 80 countries.

Representatives from each project on the final shortlist will be invited to hear the winners announced at the Beyond Sport Summit in London in July, attended by influential figures from business and politics such as Virgin Group President Sir Richard Branson, Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Mayor of London Boris Johnson.

Each winner in the six Beyond Sport Foundation Awards will receive £10,000, and a package of ongoing support for their project.
