Well done Phillips
Posted Tuesday 7 August 2012
Phillips Idowu has supported Mind since the last Olympics and we are extremely proud to have him as our official ambassador. The opportunity to compete for Team GB this summer comes only as a result of many, many months of focus, hard work and determination, and there is no doubt that Phillips has inspired a huge number of people on his road to London 2012.
Phillips is passionate about stamping out the discrimination that sadly still surrounds mental health problems, and the messages of support we have received from Mind supporters over the past few weeks, is a clear indication of the passion he has sparked in others.
We wish Phillips all the best for the coming weeks as he spends well deserved time with his family and friends. Phillips is a terrific ambassador for Mind and an athletic legend who we were very proud to cheer for today.
