The day I met Olympic Champions of TeamGB

Amazingly, it is already four years since I was hired to entertain our Olympic athletes at the coming home party after the Games in Athens in 2004.

It was an exhilarating event held in the toy store, Hamleys, in London. Big names such as Tim Henman, Kelly Holmes and Paula Radcliffe were absent, but I had the honour meeting many of the events top rowers, yachtswomen and Amir Khan, the champion boxing prodigy.

My research team is still out there trying to hunt down the name of this Olympic runner! Do check back later!
