AN Olympic medalist hopes to inspire businesses to get on track for the London 2012 games.

Relay runner Mark Richardson, who won a bronze medal in Barcelona in 1992 and silver in Atlanta in 1996, will be a speaker at a breakfast event.

He will be joined by talented young athletes at the Win Business Gold event being held at De Vere Hunton Park in Hunton Bridge, near King Langley on Friday, January 21.

The free event is the latest in a series of award winning business breakfasts, which allow firms to learn about London 2012’s procurement system called CompeteFor and how they might win contracts from Business Link experts.

Herts County Councillor Derrick Ashley said: “Our county has the highest percentage of businesses registered on CompeteFor in the region and contracts have already been won by Hertfordshire businesses. However, there are more contracts still to be won which makes this an event not to be missed for local businesses.”
