Our team at Clearline Recruitment were co-sponsors of a wonderful event that took place at The Grand Hotel. Legendary sporting personality Daley Thompson CBE attended to the delight of the 500 guests who were treated to a question and answer session.
Daley Thompson is a double Olympic Decathlon Champion born in Nottinghill in London and who now lives in our beautiful town, Brighton. For those who aren’t aware ‘Decathlon’means ‘ten events in Greek’ which was part of competition in the ancient Greek Olympics. The modern version however, has been around since the 20th century – a series of track and field events. Any athlete who participates has to excel as an all-round talented sports person.
He holds two Olympic gold medals, three Common Wealth titles and four world records and has since worked as a motivational speaker often appearing at corporate events. Daley also worked as an ambassador for the London Olympic bid.
