BT Sport Panel Show

8th Jan, 2014



On a cold Saturday at an early time i very rarely see, i was preparing to rehearse for the BT sport Panel with host’s Time Lovejoy and Matt Dawson. The set for the panel show is at the very lavish and very well located BT Sport studio’s which happens to be a stones throw from my favorite place in London. The Olympic park.

It was amazing to see a well used facility during the 2012 games now become a specialist and sophisticated studio for the fastest growing sports TV company.

On the show with the hosts was Katherine Merry Olympic 400m supremo. Alex Mccleish ex Rangers and scotland footballer turned manager and Mark Halsey a long serving premier league ref.

The show itself was great, its aired 9.30-12 and covers every possible sporting angle from amateur bloopers to professional sports contrasting views alike. On the show, a laid back sport debate and insight into our knowledge and thoughts on each others topics is the main cause, but i took on the host Tim with a battle on a stationary kayak machine (Which i won and the links below) which was a great laugh if not abit too tiring for a heavy discus thrower dressed in jeans shirt and jumper.

After getting my breath back and basking in the glory i then attempted to teach Tim and Matt the fine art of Discus throwing. To my amusement they both had a good shot at it and Matt “Strictly come” Dawson with the inevitable of dance performed one of the funniest discus techniques i have ever witnessed. A cross between a twirl and a ballet dancer that loves abit of weight training.

It was such a great laugh and hopefully ill be back on there for more fun times in the future.

Here is the clip of the race for you to enjoy!
