Icap Square Mile Sport Awards 2008: Good sports
It was off to Billingsgate in the City of London for the Icap Square Mile Sport Awards 2008 last night for a very enjoyable evening that raised a decent amount for charity. Somewhat predictably, Lewis Hamilton won the sportsperson of the year, but the event also applauded some proper athletes. On a personal note, I was very disappointed to get knocked by the Olympic double gold medallist who lives down in my neck of the woods. She declined to give me a lift home on the basis that she didn’t know me. However, she did it in such a polite manner, I really didn’t mind trudging back to London Bridge and getting the ‘vomit comet’, as the last train is colloquially known, back home.
