SPORTS fan Mitchell Abery has won a backstage trip to London 2012.

The eight-year-old, from Portsmouth, was selected as one of 100 winners in the nationwide McDonald’s Mascotathon competition.

He will have the chance to see an Olympic event and meet one of the athletes from Team GB during the three-day trip.

Mitchell, pictured with former Olympic decathlete Dean Macey, also won a variety of Mascotathon branded clothing and soft toys.

He said: ‘I’m so excited I’m getting the chance to go to the Olympic Games. I really enjoy sports in my free time and my favourite is football, trampolining and gymnastics.

‘The thing I’m most looking forward to about my trip to London is being part of the whole experience.’
