Roy Cnudde, aged 72, is a great role model to the youth and society today with his love and devotion to sport and has coached athletics since his 30s. Through all this coaching and inspiring of young people to get involved and continue within athletics he has many achievements including 8 marathons, 10 ultras and one 80 mile run. Even now, in December 2010 he become the Over 70's South of England Cross Country Champion, and in March 2011 he become the Over 70's Middlesex Masters Cross Country Champion. At the age of 72 years he still continues running, and gets upset if he cannot fit in at least two 5 mile runs a week. This is inspiring to everyone, young and old! He currently twice a week coaches for Hillingdon Athletics Club where he coaches the under 11s. In addition, he affiliates at athletics meetings at weekends, and when not required to affiliate, he volunteers to help; basically never missing a race meeting. Not only that, he is also their cleaner, making sure the club house is kept in top condition. In 2008 he was diagnosed with skin cancer but this has not stopped him doing what he loves. He is not allowed to spend time in the sun but this does not stop him spending his weekends assisting at race meetings but having to ensure that his skin is totally covering head to toe. I believe him to be a good nominee as all his achievements and devoting his time to sport I believe that he deserves to give something to the games and be apart of it.
