OLYMPICS EXCITEMENT: GB Sprinter Adam Gemili looks forward to the Tokyo games being held this summer
New research from Nationwide Building Society shows that the average person across the UK has been able to save over £1085 since March 2020. Sprinter Adam Gemini is one of the reported 2.8 million people looking to spend savings on sporting events but the difference is, he will be competing in them!
The 27 year-old, who ran the 200 metres for Team GB at the 2016 Rio Olympics and became the first ever British athlete to run the 200m in under 20 seconds and the 100m in under 10 seconds, has likened his career as an athlete to saving money. He says it’s all about setting targets and achieving them. Therefore, it is apt that so many of those surveyed said they want to use some of what has been put in sunny day savings pots during the pandemic on sporting events once it’s over.
Adam is looking forward to getting back on the track this summer and also is excited at the prospect of having crowds watching the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022.
