Continuing the fun and games from the weekend, here’s some more awesome items which have been donated for auction from some really awesome names. 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, 2012 Double Gold winner Hannah Cockroft signed both this amazing photo and my TeamGB tshirts.
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.
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!
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?
