HOY RETURNS TO OLYMPIC STADIUM

Six-time Olympic gold medallist Chris Hoy has returned to the Olympic Park for the first time since the 2012 London Olympics. 

Hoy will take part in the National Lottery’s five-mile anniversary run at the stadium this Sunday, more than a year on from winning double Olympic gold.

Hoy, who is not considering competing at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, claimed: "It's fantastic to be back here in the Olympic Stadium, the last time I was here was for the Olympic closing ceremony almost a year ago and it looks very different when it is empty, but it’s just fantastic to be back."
