Adam Barnes competed in the 4x400m for Birmingham University in front of 46,000 people.

Adam:

“I ran 1st leg and we came third in our heat in a time of 3:24 and narrowly missed out on the final by 1 team.
The fastest 8 got through to the final and we were 9th fastest which is really gutting.
The olympic stadium is really really nice though. It was so such an experience and a privilege to be able to run in it”
