Mayor teams up with Amy

07 June 2011

Outgoing Mayor of Bath, Shaun McGall teamed up with Amy Williams, Bath’s Olympic Winter Games gold medallist, at a training session at the University of Bath.

The Mayor hosted a Civic Reception for Amy as she became the first woman Honorary Freeman of the City of Bath a year ago – a celebration that took place the same day that Shaun became Mayor.

And as one of his last acts as Mayor he attended one of Amy’s training sessions on the push-start track at the Sports Training Village.

After Amy had shown him how it’s done, the Mayor took the opportunity to have a couple of goes on the track himself, under Amy’s careful guidance.

“It was really exciting and a little scary,” he said. “Amy became an Honorary Freeman of the City the day I became Mayor, so it was fitting that I had the opportunity to watch one of her training sessions on my penultimate day as Mayor.”
