Thanks to those folks at Nottingham City Business Club for oraganising a great Christmas lunch today at the Park Plaza. Not only was it a lovely lunch with good company – but guest speaker Sally Gunnell was a most impressive guest.

She thrilled us with the story of that day in 1992 when she won Gold in the 400m Hurdles at the Barcelona Olympics. She explained that as she was walking to the track she passed Lindford Christie who was showing off his recently won Gold medal. He asked her if she was going to sit at the front of the plane on the way home. Puzzled she asked why – ‘cos only the gold medal winners will sit at the front he replied…. this was all the incentive she needed…. the rest is history.!!!!! Nige
