BEST TO STICK TO THE DAY JOB
A MEDIA race at the World Para Athletics Championships ended with a broken ankle for a former AW writer.
The event involved press and organisers racing blindfolded with guides to experience what it feels like to be a visually-impaired athlete.
But ex-AW news editor Ben Coldwell tripped during the race, breaking his ankle, and said: “It might have ended with a broken ankle, but the World Para Athletics Champs was genuinely the most enjoyable thing I’ve ever been part of. Bring on the IAAF World Championships.”
