Emily Diamond Visits Whitehall Athletics Arena

Emily Diamond who won a bronze medal in the Rio Olympics as a member of the Great Britain & Northern Ireland 4 x 400 metres relay team returned to her roots on Wednesday 14th September 2016 when she visited Bristol & West Athletic Club at Whitehall Athletics Arena. Emily was a student at Bristol Grammar School before she went to University and now works in Bath and trains at Bath University but visiting the Wednesday night Junior Academy and Young Athlete sessions reminded her of her formative years in the sport training with the club at the old Whitchurch Stadium. As well as featuring in numerous selfies with young athletes and her medal and seeing various groups of young athletes training Emily took time to sit down and recount her Olympic experiences clearly inspiring her audience and hopefully leading to several future club athletes following in her footsteps to become Olympic medalists. emily-3emily-8
