Richmond’s very own Marathon Man mingled with sporting greats at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year ceremony in Glasgow last night.
Rob Young was invited to the SSE Hydro in Glasgow last night where he saw Lewis Hamilton scoop the coveted title.
The 32-year-old is currently deep into a world record attempt to run 367 marathons in 365 days but took time out from pounding the pavements to attend the glittering awards ceremony.
Rob told SWL: “The night was jam-packed, full of inspirational sports men and women who all individually possess star qualities that enable them to excel and inspire the next generation – to go beyond their limits to succeed in sports.”
Rob was reunited with fellow Richmond-based runner and European champion Jo Pavey who came third in the BBC Sports Personality of the Year category.
He also rubbed shoulders with the likes of six-time Olympic champion Sir Chris Hoy, World Number One golfer Rory McIlroy, Robin Cousins, former rugby union player Jonny Wilkinson and Eddie Izzard.
