Two new Ambassadors aim to inspire at Community Games
Two local sporting stars have joined the growing number of athletic heroes to lend their support to the Sutton Coldfield Community Games.
Sutton Coldfield track and field legend Kevin Brown and Lichfield Paralympic hopeful Chelsey Dixon have stepped up to give their time to inspire and encourage others to try new sports at the two-day community event.
They join Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth champions David Moorcroft, Jonathan Broom-Edwards, Hamish Carter, Jane Sixsmith, Darren Harris and Laura Whittle in becoming ambassadors for the Sutton Games.
Royal Sutton Athletic Club athlete Kevin is a four-time World Discuss Champion and has represented Great Britain at no less than seven World Masters, three European Championships, two Commonwealth Games and at the Sydney Olympics in 2000.
Kevin is also renowned for his feats of strength and endurance and holds two world records for pulling a vehicle over 100m – one of which was an eight-tonne truck! At the Sutton Games, he will be demonstrating his skills by pulling a Land Rover along the 100 metre straight.
Paracanoe competitor Chelsey is a new recruit to Team GB having made her international debut for her country and sport last year. She is currently ranked number nine in the world in her category and has now taken two years out from university to focus on training for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
