David Weir and Jo Pavey drop in on King’s Athletics

Six time Olympic gold medalist David Weird and European 10,000 Champion, Jo Pavey visited Southwark Park Athletics Centre today.

With two days to go until the London Marathon, the pair were greeted by athletes from King’s College London, London City AC and Southwark’s Mini-Marathon team.

Weir and Pavey were quizzed by athletes on a range of topics from diet to training techniques.

Weir will be going for a seventh London Marathon gold on Sunday.

Five-time Olympian Jo Pavey told athletes her desire is to qualify for World Championships.


Pavey is returning to marathon running for the first time in six years and will secure her place in team GB if she finishes as a top-two Brit and runs the qualifying time of two hours and 36 minuets.
