Olympic champ Christine Ohuruogu in Q&A with children

Olympic Gold Medallist Christine Ohuruogu took time out of her training schedule to talk to children about her book series.

She was at Stratford Circus to celebrate the release of her new series Camp Gold.

It was a one-off free event that gave more than 100 children the chance to hear Christine talk, ask questions and have books signed by the athlete.

The two Camp Gold books are written by Christine and although they are purely fiction, they are inspired by her own experiences of running and training. They are called Running Stars and Going for Gold.

She is currently training for this summer’s Olympics.
