The award I was in for (Physical achiever of the year) was only 3rd on the list, so once the food was done, raffle tickets were sold and former Gymnast Craig Heap had given a rousing speech, then it was down to business pretty darn quick !

and, like any good story, this one has a happy ending

The evening was ended perfectly with me getting a chance to hold a Gold & Silver medal & Get a picture with Craig
