Before their journey down to London for the 2012 Olympic Games, Boxers from Team Nigeria and Team Tanzania were located in Bradford for around 6 weeks prior to the Games. The brand-new facilities of the Bradford Police and College Boxing Academy; located at Bradford College, were used as their base and training ground in the lead-up to the Games. I joined them for a few of their training sessions, photos are below.
Two Male Nigerian boxers; Lawal Lukman and Muideen Akanji were also based in Bradford in the run-up to the Games.
Selemani Kidunda for Team Tanzania was also based in Bradford, and used the excellent facilities daily.
Earlier today I went along to meet the Athletes from Leeds, on their return from the London 2012 Paralympic Games. It was a great reception for them as hundreds of people gathered in Millennium Square in Leeds to welcome their heroes home. Athletes present today were:
“Hurricane Hannah” Cockroft – T34 100m and 200m Wheelchair Sprints – Double Gold medalist.
David Stone MBE – Gold and Bronze medalist in the Cycling Mixed T1-2 Road Race.
Claire Cashmore – Silver medalist in the Women’s SB8 100m Breaststroke and 4x100m Medley relay team. Bronze medalist in the Women’s 4x100m Freestyle relay.
Ali Jawad – 4th place in the Men’s 56kg Powerlifting
It was a great welcome home for the returning Athletes, and all have done both Leeds and GB proud!
