Sonny in Olympic Warm Up RoomThrough out the year, Core Telecom has been supporting an up and coming Great Britain weightlifter. You can read about our sponsorship launch from April 2012 here: Olympic weightlifting hopeful goes for gold with Core Telecom.

Sonny’s rapid rise up the GB Weightlifting rankings has been remarkable, and the current Commenwealth Junior Champion has now set his sights on Olympic Gold in the future.

As part of his progress, Sonny was invited down to the Olympic Park in London during the games to sample the atmosphere, have a look around at the facilities and even found time to mingle with some famous faces!

During his stay he was able to meet swimming veteran Mark Foster, he had a walk out with Sir Clive Woodward and was delighted to bump into opera singer Katherine Jenkins. He was also given the chance to attend some events, obviously this includes the weightlifting but he also checked in on The Basketball Arena.

In our featured picture you can see Sonny being given access to the weightlifting warm up room. This is the place that the Olympic weightlifting hopefuls warmed up before going for gold in the main arena.
