There’s No Getting “Weir”ey of These OlympicGoodies (Part 2)

weirwolfContinuing the fun and games from the weekend, here’s some more awesome items which have been donated for auction from some really awesome namesDSCN1502.  First up, someone I have wanted to meet for an eternity, the legend that is the Weirwolf, David Weir.  With six London Marathons and FOUR Gold Medals at London 2012, he really is top of the hit list.  Among the items David signed were these awesome stamps from London 2012 as well as a unique Paralympics Oyster card which was also signed by fellow Gold winner Jonnie Peacock.  Keeping the Paralympic themes going, hannahcockroft2012 Double Gold winner Hannah Cockroft signed both this amazing photo and my TeamGB tshirts.

DSCN1499Also adding her name to the tshirts was Sophie Kamlish who competed at London 2012 aged sophiekamlishjust 15!

Getting back to the Olympics, some awesome additions were also made to the TeamGB items and loads more.  DSCN1501

Jess Judd has been flying in recent weeks and won on her 800m Senior Debut last week in Gateshead, pictured on the cover of this month’s Athletics Weekly which Jess was kind enough to sign with the winning time added.  On Sunday she then smashed through the 2min mark for the first time… immense and an awesome item for auctioning.

DSCN1500I spent time working on numerous multi signed Olympic items like this shot from the opening ceremony featuring, among others, Dai Greene, Eilidh Child, Perri Shakes-Drayton and Sally Pearson.  ryanwhiting

Ryan Whiting, American Shot Putter, was also kind enough to donate to the auctions, contributing his used name badges for auction, here’s me with Ryan after he signed for me… wow his handshakes are sturdy!

jennifersuhrLast for now (I’ll put some more pics on the dedicated page on this site) is Jenn Suhr, 2012 Olympic Pole Vault Gold Medal winner, who signed several items including multi photos.

All in all, as you can see from the two posts… AMAZING WEEKEND!!!  25 days until the Olympic and Paralympic Auction, who knows what will be added next?
