Sunglasses Wearing Jenny Meadows Wins Bronze in Berlin


Pint-sized sunglasses wearing British athlete Jenny Meadows made a late charge last night to a brilliant Bronze medal in the 800m at the Athletics World Championship in Berlin.  (Jenny Meadows on the far left).

She was all but last when she began her final lap of the track and even as the athletes entered the finishing straight she was still way back in 6th place.  It was an amazing sprint to the finish line for the little pocket rocket Jenny who took the long way round her competitors only narrowly missing out on the Silver medal.

But rumours and speculation about the gender of winning athlete South Africa’s Caster Semenya, who dominated the race could mean that Jenny’s Bronze Medal could be upgraded to a Silver if the results of a possible gender test prove conclusive.

Jenny Meadows’ great result follows the amazing success of Phillips Idowu’s Triple Jump Gold Medal and Britain’s new Golden Girl Jessica Ennis who won Gold in the Heptathlon and is tipped to become British Sports Personality of the Year and Face of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Jenny Meadows – The Sunglasses Wearing Athlete

It’s not too hard to find pictures of Britain’s top athletes these days, but you will be hard pressed to find pictures of Jenny Meadows where she is not actually wearing any sporting sunglasses of some kind or other.  It seems they have been surgically attached to her face.  But maybe she’s just being sensible and trying to protect her eyes.


Petite Jenny is often seen sporting Oakley Sunglasses whether she is on or off the track.
