Over the last week the nation has been gripped by the Olympic Games and the Watson's community has been particularly drawn to the Velodrome and the exploits of Sir Chris Hoy (Class of 1994).
Entering the London Olympics Chris was the proud owner of five Olympic medals (four gold and one silver). His success in last week's Team Sprint (with team mates Jason Kenny and Philip Hindes) brought him his fifth Olympic gold medal. Earlier this evening he added a further gold in the Keirin, making him Great Britain's most successful Olympian of all time.
Gareth Edwards, Principal, said after Chris' historic Keirin race, "All of us at Watson's are immensely proud that Great Britain's most successful Olympian is a Watsonian. Sir Chris epitomises all that is best about top-flight sport. Not only is he a shining example of dedication, perseverance and sheer sporting talent but he is also a great ambassador for his sport and the nation. There is no better role model for young people whatever they aspire to achieve."
