02.Jul.11 Iwan Thomas at the Aviva ESAA English Schools
Athletes at the Aviva ESAA English Schools on Friday were supported by Aviva Ambassador Iwan Thomas, who came to Gateshead to watch the action and gave some of his time to talk to us about this year's Championships as well as his own experience and the role the Championships played in his development.
He said: "Many moons ago I did the English Schools, when I was at school in Lincolnshire, and I was runner up but really for me it was like a stepping stone. From there I went on to compete in the World Junior Championships. It's a great event."
Watch our interview with Iwan below.
