It’s hard to say which is my favourite image in the stunning new collection produced by East Midlands Tourism –
using special places in the region as the setting for current and aspiring Olympians in action. It’s just too tough to choose between the image of two fencers fighting perilously close to the edge of a Peak escarpment and the basketball players leaping in the nave of Lincoln Cathedral. But perhaps the most extraordinary juxtaposition of future and past, of energy and heritage is this great shot of hurdler Andy Turner, doing his thing in the Long Gallery at Rockingham Castle. Pure magic.
