Olympic gold medallist Sally Gunnell will be the guest speaker at the inaugural West Suffolk Sports awards later this month.

Former 400-metre hurdler Gunnell is the only woman in history to have ever held all four major championship gold medals at the same time – Olympic, World, Commonwealth and European – plus the world record.

A mother-of-three, she spearheads charity events such as Cancer Research’s Race for Life, is a figurehead for the British Heart Foundation and an accomplished motivational speaker, promoting health and well-being for everyone.

She said: “I’m very much looking forward to the West Suffolk Sports Awards, and in particular hearing all the fantastic inspirational stories from the athletes, coaches and volunteers”

This will be the first joint sports awards for West Suffolk and is being held at the St Edmundsbury Cathedral on September 28.
