According to a correspondent on the West Ham Mailing List, West Ham are doing rather well in the Olympics.
Mark Hunter, who won a gold medal in the lightweight double sculls, grew up in Poplar, lives in Romford, and is a mad-keen Irons fan. And Christine Ohuruogu, who has just won the 400 metres, is a regular at All Saints’ Church, West Ham, where her mum is a churchwarden.
That means that West Ham has won as many golds as Canada at the moment.
Anyone know any other British olympians who have West Ham connections?
