From Banbury Harriers to the Olynpics
Presented by Alan Vincent who has two decades of officiating at the top level in the sport of athletics.
He qualified first as a 'manual timekeeper' but later took on senior management roles, such as Competition Secretary and Meeting Manager. Since the Millennium he has been a senior official at most of the major games in the UK, including the Olympics and Paralympics (2012), the World & World Para Championships (2017) and this year, the European Indoor Championships in Glasgow.
A lifetime love of athletics and a mediocre, but immensely enjoyable, career as an athlete led to Alan's wish 'to put something back in' as an official.
Presented by the Library Supporters Group now meeting back in the Library
