‘Athletics Legend’ Filbert Bayi was in the line-up at yesterday’s Commonwealth Games press conference.
Filbert said in the accompanying press release, “I am excited to be back at the Commonwealth Games and looking forward to seeing some amazing athletes over the coming days. As I have been reflecting on my own career in my new book Catch Me If You Can, the 1,500m at the Commonwealth Games in Christchurch in 1974 stands out as a truly special moment. I hope the athletes competing here in this wonderful stadium in Birmingham will create similar lifelong memories; that they will compete bravely and push each other to new heights.”
Catch Me If You Can has been released to coincide with this year’s Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. It is available through all good booksellers now.
