A great Mo-ment for Adam

19th March 2019

Former sports student, Adam meets Olympic Gold medalist Sir Mo Farah!

Former sports student Adam Dower met Sir Mo Farah recently and grabbed a selfie with the long distance legend.

Keen sportsman Adam from Hornchurch studied sport at BDC and secured a place at university last September.

He likes to keep in touch with Errol Parker, Head of Sports, telling him about his latest run and other sporting events he has taken part in.

His latest success was in The Vitality Big Half earlier this month, beating his personal best of 1:38:52. Where more than 13,300 runners took to the streets of London as part of The Vitality Big Half 2019, the capital's annual half marathon.

Mo won the event in a thrilling sprint finish as preparation for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon.

Somehow Adam managed to catch up Sir Mo at a restaurant, and grabbed a cheeky selfie.

Adam said: “I didn't get to speak to him because he was with his family when I saw him. However, when he was free for a minute, I asked him if we could have a photo and when he said yes I felt amazed that he took a minute of his time to have a photo with me. Although I beat my PB on the half marathon, getting that photo with Sir Mo Farah made my whole day!”
