We were very excited to see a local celebrity and former student of one of our most long-standing clients, Loughbrough University, elected to the position of President of the IAAF, the body that governs world athletics.
It was at Loughborough University that Lord Coe met athletics coach George Gandy who had developed "revolutionary" conditioning exercise to improve Coe's running. He went on to win back to back Olympic gold medals in the 1500m in 1980 and 1984, and claimed silver medals in the 800m at both Moscow and Los Angeles Olympic Games. With two Olympic golds, two silvers, a European gold, eight outdoor and three indoor world records, Seb is recognised as having an athletic career of almost unparalleled achievement.
Congratulations Seb - we wish you well in your new post!
