BEST TO STICK TO THE DAY JOB

Athletics Weekly - - Dip Finish -

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.”
