Swimming star Siobhan-Marie O'Connor to start Olympic Day
Commonwealth swimming champion Siobhan-Marie O’Connor will act as official starter for the annual Olympic Day Run when it takes places at the University of Bath on Saturday.
Being staged over a 5km course at the Sports Training Village or 3km for under-16s, the run will start at 2pm and is the centerpiece of the Team Bath Community Activity Day.
Hundreds of people have taken part over the past few years in the run, an international Olympic Movement activity promoting mass participation in sport.
Last year’s race was started by former Modern Pentathlon World Champion Mhairi Spence and the honour this year goes to fellow London 2012 Olympian O’Connor, who trains with the British Swimming National Training Centre at the University of Bath.
