Im feeling a little star struck
Once in a while my job throws up some real good days! As part of my many jobs I do, photography is one and today I had the pleasure of not one but two celebrities in school to photograph.
First up was Ryan Bradley (Gymnast) and secondly was Ann Jones (Tennis) who very kindly brought along with her - Wimbledon Womens Winner, Wimbledon Doubles Winner, World Championship Winner, French Open and BBC Sports Personality of the Year 1969 Trophies! Ann was also an ex-pupil at the school.

Dame Kelly is impressive as an athlete but I found her to be a tad rude and pushy, pushing to the front of the queue whenever she turned up in Winchester and would never talk to the awe-struck trainees. The final straw for me was when a resettlement / training meeting of mine got dropped so she could be squeezed in and she took up 3 times what she should have done.
All the time in the world for Kris Akabusi, who I met as a kid ... a true gent.

He works as a motivational speaker nowadays, have you seen his website? Coooool!
I remember seeing him laughing his head off on so many TV programs, back in the day.

I went to primary school with and was in the same school swim school squad as Kieren Perkins the Australian long distance swimmer and olympic gold medalist. He was very good then and was already in the Queensland and Australian junior squads. I wasn't a bad swimmer then (to get into the school swim squad you had to meet miminum times etc) and still am not, but he was in a different league from the rest of us. Funnily enough he got in two swimming seriously as physio for a broken leg and finding he liked it as was good at it! My school walked away with the inter-school swimming championship trophy for 3 years running due to him!
