The FINANCIAL -- London Business School
alumni Catherine Nicoll MSc18(1985) and Roy Martins MBA1995 carried the
Olympic Torch through part of its London leg this week.
Catherine, who is head of THB Group's Compliance team, took part in the Torch relay yesterday as it passed near her workplace's London offices and the famous Lloyd's building in the City of London.
As London Business School reported, she was chosen from tens of thousands of nominees for the honour of carrying the flame after being nominated by a friend.
Catherine said: "Knowing my avid interest in sport, a friend was keen to nominate me to fly the flag for the over 60s.
"I enjoy many sports including fencing, and ever since my daughter Chrystall began competing around the world as a leading sabreuse inBritain's fencing team I have been closely involved in promoting the value of sport generally, and fencing in particular.
"I even completed the London Marathon at the age of 54, raising £7,500 for SportsAid."
Roy Martins, the head of prime services for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Credit Suisse, carried the Olympic torch in Croydon on Monday, after being nominated by colleagues for his work with Pratham, children's charity in India.
