John Inverdale Presents:
A Sporting Life Behind The Microphone
11th February - 18th February
Welcome to the exhibition which I sincerely hope you will enjoy it.
Since I started my career with the BBC thirty five years ago I have had the honour and privilege of commentating on and witnessing some of the most spectacular sporting moments. The fifty images contained in this exhibition are my handpicked moments that have had the greatest impact on me throughout my career not just for the astonishing achievements of some of the world’s best athletes but also for the story they tell. From world champions, to sporting disasters to amazing sporting successes to the devastating atrocity of Hillsborough. I hope you enjoy sharing the story of my sporting life behind the microphone.
And why the exhibition? To raise awareness of the most brilliant charitable organisation Aspire, that obviously resonates greatly with the sporting community, be they equestrians, rugby players, boxers, whatever. Every eight hours someone is paralysed by a spinal cord injury. It can happen in a split second. There is no warning and no time to prepare. That is why Aspire, the national Spinal Cord Injury Charity exists; to provide practical services and support. I am proud to have been involved with Aspire since 2000 and honoured to have been the President of Aspire since 2009. This exhibition is in support of their incredible work.
