Higher, Faster, Stronger

Could He Be The Next Sprints Of Wales?

A young sprinter could be on the verge of Britain's Olympic team - after he was spotted running for a bus. Jeffrey Lawal Balogun, 23, was noticed by a coach from a local track and field club who happened to be walking by. Balogun said: "I never thought running after a bus would lead to all this. And the funny thing is, I missed it."

FOOTNOTE: Running late.

Yeah, but are they gonna want to have the Olympians all chasing buses so this guy can be motivated to run?

Glad something good is coming up out of dear old Blighty!
Big brother is always watching you!

Lucky him, but I wouldn't remind the coach that he missed the bus.
