Becky Wood from BBC Midlands has been tackling a sporting challene in aid of Sport Relief. She is cycling 60 miles and as part of the journey has been learning about a lot of other sports.

A first stop of the day was to the Birmingham Alexander Stadiu where she met sprinter Diani Walker. After putting Bekcy through a series of sprint drills Diani then went on to show her how to start from blocks, a tehnique Becky found very challenging. It was great to be part of her challenge and fun was had between her and Diani, who is looking foward to competing on her home track at the Commonwealth Games in 2022.

We wish Becky every sucess with her challenge and look forward to see how much she raised for such a worthy cause.
