British Athletic Legends Go ‘Back to the Track’ at the Aviva London Grand Prix

Four legendary British athletes went back to the track at the Aviva London Grand Prix at Crystal Palace on Saturday to help raise awareness and funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The special 4 x 100m relay race comprised of four teams headed up by some of Britain’s athletic legends – including Olympic silver medallist Iwan Thomas, Olympic gold medallist Jason Gardener, Olympic silver medallist John Regis, and Commonwealth silver medallist Tony Jarrett – who were joined by Macmillan supporters and media personalities, including Sky News’s Kay Burley.

The Blue team, lead by John Regis, ended up victorious on the day, closely followed by Iwan Thomas’s Red team.
