The 19-year-old Loughborough College sports management student narrowly missed out on qualifying for London 2012 but has already posted an 800m qualifying time for Glasgow and says: “There’s already such a buzz about 2014 with everyone back home so excited about the Games.
“It’s already a big part of my life as an ambassador for 2014 working on creating a lasting legacy from London 2012.”
Guy teamed up with fellow College student Nicola White, a bronze medallist with Team GB’s women’s hockey team, to help provide youngsters from Loughborough’s Church of England, Mountfields and Boothwood schools with a memorable morning at today’s Flames Festival at Loughborough University.
“It’s something I’ve really enjoyed since the College’s Elite Sport Education Officer Chris McGeorge approached me about becoming involved a couple of years ago,” he said. “It’s great to see the smiling faces of the children and to share some of my experience. People have invested a lot of time and effort in getting me this far – this is one way of giving something back.”
