Jason Kenny’s Homecoming.

On Saturday the 1st of September Boltonians gathered in their thousands to welcome home Jason Kenny, after winning the men’s team sprint, and the individual sprint at London 2012 Olympics.

It might sound cheesy but seeing just a normal lad from Bolton achieve something so amazing, it has really inspired me. Being from a little northern town we’re under the impression that the ones who make it are from rich backgrounds, have been through private education and are brought up around London or big cities. He reminds us today that we can achieve great things with a lot of hard work and determination, and our background doesn’t make a difference.
