Five days prior to enjoying her particular experience of winning
the Women’s 1500m at London’s Olympic Park,
Morpeth Harrier Laura Weightman’s younger brother Adam,
who also runs for the club, was also enjoying
his own experience of the same venue,
when he competed in the Morrison’s sponsored Newham 10k Road Race.
Adam finished in 466th position, in a time of 43m22s.
Although his finishing time was not as fast
as he would have wished for, he still described
the experience of running on the
Olympic track as wonderful,
and was an opportunity he would not
have missed out on at any price.
