Olympians visit RSCAC!!!

Posted: August 25, 2012 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized

WOW! What a day. I think we’ve all just about recovered from the excitement of yesterday. We were truly honoured to be visited by GB athletes Lawrence Clarke, Christine Ohuruogu and Greg Rutherford.

Startrack athletes impressed the Olympians with their athletic prowess, while Christine, Greg and Lawrence gave advice and encouragement to help them become Olympians of the future.

It was an amazing day. Through a question and answer session with the stars we found out that Greg plans to get selected for the GB 4 x 100m team in the future and he also thinks he might be able to beat Bolt! (At the long jump.)  The athletes posed for many photos and gave loads of autographs; they really did everything they could to inspire those around them.

Thank you so much Christine, Greg and Lawrence.  We’re all so grateful to you for giving up your time to come and see us.  Best of luck for tomorrow’s Diamond League. And a big thanks to UK Athletics for selecting our club to host such an exciting event.
