Olympic torch bearer, Sleaford, Lincolnshire

Olympic Flame journey through Sleaford.

Premier Galvanizing’s Technical and Development Director, Robert Mohan, has something to smile about next week. His eldest son, also called Robert, has been selected to carry the Olympic flame on a leg of its journey through Sleaford in Lincolnshire on Wednesday 27th June.

Robert has been a successful athlete from a young age and has concentrated on shot put for the last couple of years since going to Loughborough University where he has just finished his degree in Sports Science.  It is not surprising that he has athletics running through his veins, as his parents Robert and Jackie are both keen athletics supporters, coaches and ex-athletes.

Robert (jnr) says “It’s a massive honour and I realise how lucky I am to be selected.  I have always loved doing sport and it is such a thrill to think that I will be carrying the torch in my home county of Lincolnshire”.

We wish him the best of luck next week and congratulations on being selected for such an amazing event.
