Secret BMX racer - Iwan Thomas

March 09 2012

In the first in our miniseries of celebrities with a secret passion for BMX, we catch up with Iwan Thomas.

Iwan Thomas is best known for being arguably the greatest 400m runner Great Britain has ever seen. He’s got European and Commonwealth athletics titles, an Olympic Silver medal and the British record to his name but the former British Olympic athlete has a secret former life - as a BMX racer!

Iwan travelled the world on BMX, including to his first World BMX Championships in Florida, 1987, but a few too many crashes saw him turn to athletics! In this video we see him recapture his childhood as he gets back on his BMX bike at Gosport BMX track.
