Man V’s Jet

South West Athletics Academy were contacted by ITV to be part of a new TV programme called “Its not Rocket Science” to see if a top GB sprinter – Adam Gemili could race a Red Arrow Jet in their home location of Lincolnshire. Sonya, Sam and Jordan travelled up and after a lot of safety checks we set up our portable track on the airfield runway and after practices and checks with the Jets and Adam we were ready to go. Sonya had also brought her starting gun so working with the producer and camera crew started the races with Adam and the jet. There were 3 Jets and 3 races you can see the final TV bit on the page – who do you think won? – enjoy!
