Tribute to Mr Andy Coogan, BEM. WW2 hero, Japanese prisoner of war and local running coach who died this week just a few weeks short of his 100th birthday. #hero #britishathletics #olympics #torchbearer #olympics2012 #coach #giantamongstmen #carnoustie #scotland #rip

Tributes flooding in on the OurCarnoustie Facebook page.

His life.... Andy, was born in Springburn, Glasgow, where he was educated, and then became a painter and decorator.
He was a Billy Whizz of a kid, always on the go, scrounging, selling on, running errands, making sixpence here, a shilling there. The day he showed he could outrun the fastest local policeman, he was invited to take up athletics as a serious pastime and joined the Maryhill Harriers, one of Scotland’s oldest athletics clubs and a breeding ground for champions.

His National Service was as a Signalman with the Royal Artillery. He was held prisoner by the Japanese for three-and-a-half years and was held only 20 miles from Nagasaki, where the second atomic bomb was detonated. Sadly this imprisonment and terrible treatment he received brought an end to his Olympic dreams.
At the age of 95 his story was published in the book 'Tomorrow You Die', published by Mainstream (2012). However, it is as an athlete that he is better know to the people of Carnoustie.
His career includes running in the Commonwealth Games. He trained many young runners, and took great interest in athletics.
Andy was also a golfer (and caddie) in Carnoustie. When in his 80s, while he was caddying, he found himself carrying the clubs for the Japanese ambassador. Here was his chance to speak his mind about all he had endured during the war, to get the justifiable hatred off his chest, to return some of the contempt dished out to him. He stayed silent, out of natural dignity and principle. 'Bitterness and hatred are self-destructive,' explained this gentle and humble man.

"I'm going to greatly miss being part of the team heading to Tokyo in 2020, but I am comforted by the strength our team has shown over the past 4 years."

Here’s a #TBT to one of our films that screened in 2016. Boxing for Freedom is about Sadaf Rahimi and her sister, Shabnam, aiming to box in the London 2012 Olympics despite the challenges of being physically active women in Afghanistan.

This evening I was lucky enough to listen to the journey Goldie Sayers took to become a Bronze medal winner. She was primarily addressing secondary school children& was an absolute inspiration having been given a javelin by school at 13 to take home for the Easter holidays. BUT...my overriding sadness is that at The olympics she missed out on a medal & came 4th, only to be informed later that due to a Russian athlete being confirmed as a drug cheat, she had in fact won the bronze medal. This infuriates me to see athletes missing out on their time on the rostrum. Top respect @goldiesayers #trueathlete #teamgb #thisgirlcan #javelin #olympics2012 #strongnotskinny #followyourdreams

I worked at the 2012 London Olympics, and this was every morning. It was an interesting experience though exhausting.
Seeing as I imagine enough time has passed since the Olympics, it's alright to post this.

World champuion

Mo Farah left Rio with the “double double”, having won the 5,000 and 10,000 metre men’s race at consecutive Games. The achievement looked in doubt as the athlete tripped during the shorter race, but recovered to take the line in dramatic fashion.
