I was surprised to find a scrum of people around the entrace to the media bit. Apparently they were all trying to get the autograph ofm Colin Jackson This did surprise me, as most of them would have barely remembered his athletics career. Admittedly, at the time of typing (September 2014), he's nearly 50. I hope I look that good at his age.
Photos of the Great City Games, Newcastle, 6th September 2014. I spent most of the day hovering around the long jump pit, as it seemed to be the closest place to get to any action. Some of the names I can remember...
Greg Rutherford (overall winner)
JJ Jegede (pulled out after the first round)
At the end of the day, I went to the main track to see Andy Turner saying his goodbyes, as this would be his last ever race.
