Leading from the front

By February 14, 2012News

With just a few months left to go to the Olympics, it’s crunch time for participants.  Strict training regimes, diets and fitness programmes are the order of the day as thousands of toned athletes get ready for their shot at a Gold medal.

In North London, one man is also on a mission to get himself in perfect shape for the Games.  A rotund fellow has reportedly been seen running 10 kilometres three mornings a week, doing 100 pushups and riding his famous cycle across the capital.  According to this figure’s personal trainer, he has ‘been urging people to get into sport so I think he’s been keen to be seen to be leading from the front in an Olympic year.’

Yes, Boris is on a fitness drive.  The Mayor hires personal trainer to the stars Jon Denori back in October in an attempt to get slim in time for the Games.  And, it appears to be working.  The Evening Standard reports that ‘the Mayor, who City Hall observers say has “looked much more sprightly in recent weeks”, has now lost more than a stone as well as three inches off his waist-line.’

Perhaps it’s not too late for Boris to make Team GB after all….
