It was great to see that Robert Heffernan won the World Athletics 50k Walk after 4th placing in major championships at least twice.
Indeed he was so delighted, he started celebrating early and ended up missing out on the Irish record by 2 seconds but what a performance. And I'll bet it was his own record anyway.
So by now you are probably wondering what all this has to do with me, The Welbeck or the Isle of Man.
Cue my tenuous link to fame:
Of course my great chum, Murray Lambden was delighted for him but probably even more so because he was able to regurgitate (if you'll excuse the intended pun) his video of the 2001 finish. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCtGtSsZ5TU#at=46
Actually the fact that Murray, webmaster of manxathletics.com has filmed Rob Heffernan chundering is the other thing we have in common ;)
