Description

The Telegraph published an article discussing the build up to London 2017. I was interviewed and gave some comments on the priority tickets for fans.
The article is behind a paywall, however the text that relates to me is copied in below:

Williams decided he had to be part of the IAAF World Championships in Beijing last year. After a 10-hour flight, he found himself watching Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis Hill and Katarina Johnson Thompson on the very first day. “One of the most memorable moments from Beijing was when I watched Greg Rutherford walk down to each section of GB fans and thank them for making the trip. He noticed and acknowledged our effort and instantly it made the trip worthwhile. Having been to several athletics events in the UK, and as a loyal supporter, I’m eligible for the priority purchase window for the World Athletics Championships. I couldn’t be more thrilled.”
