If Og was allowed to write his own profile he would start with a 15 page dossier on his ankle, back ,hamstring complaints! (etc.....etc) (with regular twitter updates on fresh twinges!) His ankle ailments are indeed legendary believed to originate from an ancient football injury but it was so long ago that it is said they were playing with a pig’s bladder at the time!
Joking aside he is a rock of a character who will mentally be able to eat the challenges put his way but its always a test whether the bag of bones will be as tough as the mind.
The Channel Relay was the start of his Open Water Swimming career and he rouse to the occasion - worryingly he has taken comfortably to both lycra and speedo's and Mick, Og and Dickie are regulars in the Codgers World Tour Series!
