YAHOO UK EUROSPORT – My Life Was Changed By An Olympic Moment

An article for Yahoo UK Eurosport about people who were inspired to do various things by the Olympics

Here’s something I’m quite proud of (despite the editing, which seems to have taken out  my “j ne se quois” and most of the images 😦 ).

So, I went and tracked down some interesting interview subjects for your delight…

This list, including former Olympic 400m hurdles gold winner, Edwin Moses, tell me about how an ‘Olympic moment’ inspired them to do big things with their lives. Amongst the respondents we have pro athletes, a top level photo editor, and the managing director for a UK travel company. All of them with very different perspectives and experiences.

Inspiration is a thing more powerful than words can convey. No doubt someone will write a similar article, in the decades to come, about the people who ‘caught a fire’ from  the Olympics of 2012.

Or at least I hope they will.
