A kiss from Kelly for new athletics star Thom Evans

Monday February 20, 2012

Former rugby star Thom Evans has competed in the scottishathletics National Senior Indoor Championships - and was rewarded with a kiss from his partner Kelly Brook.

The 26-year-old took part in the 60 metres sprint at Glasgow's Kelvin Hall, while Kelly cheered on from the the stands.

Thom has been exploring athletics since his recovery from the severe neck injury in Wales two years ago which cut short his rugby career.

The event was the first time the former Scotland international has raced north of the border.

He is working with coach Margot Wells, the wife of Scottish Olympic gold medallist Allan, and would eventually like to compete in the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
