So, this is Brendan Foster. I'm beyond the age where I'd rush over and ask for his autograph. Instead, I'd take photos from a distance (zoom lend activated) and when he's not talking to someone important, rush over and shake his hand. Which is what I did. Oddly, he didn't know who I was.

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)
Chris Tomlinson
Christian Taylor

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.
