    Not sure if I should be doing this without Ned's permission, but I think that we all like heart warming stories. I'd not heard of her until recently, and then saw a BBC 10 minute interview with her this morning. And b**ger me, she's the niece of an AV Forum veteran.

    Watch the video clip I posted and you will see why he is so proud.

    Cheers
    Phil

    Edit - probably best to reply on the original thread. This was just a window for more people to learn about an Olympian with a connection to the forums.
