Olympian Jason Gardener to speak to the Bath WI on May 16th.

Jason GardenerWe’re delighted that we’ve been lucky enough to persuade one of the UK’s most successful athletes  Jason Gardener to speak to us in the run up to this years Olympics.

Due to the inevitable demands on Jason’s time in this Olympic year we’ve had to be a bit flexible with our dates.  So, we’ve moved our May meeting to May 16th.  We’ll still be meeting at 7.30pm and still at St. Mary’s Bathwick.  We hope that this is okay with you all, but thought that the opportunity to hear Jason speak was too good to pass up!

Jason is one of the UK’s all time great sprinters. He achieved one of his ultimate ambitions at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games by winning Gold in the mens 4x100m relay. Earlier that year he became World Indoor Champion over 60m.  He’s the winner of four European Indoor championship titles over 60 meters and a Commonwealth Games Champion for the 4x100m relay.

He is a member of the very select sub 10 second club for 100m with a personal best of 9.98 seconds and Captained the Great Britian & Northen Ireland Athletics team.  He was awarded an MBE for services to athletics and has been made a Freeman of the city of Bath.
