Olympic winner's visit

26 August 2012

Change to schedule for Sophie's visit

We wish to inform supporters that Olympic gold medal winner Sophie Hosking will now be presented to the crowd during half-time of the Dagenham & Redbridge match.

 AFC Wimbledon are pleased to make this change to allow volunteers who work right up until kick-off time to see Sophie return to the club she supports.

Sophie, who earned Olympic 2012 glory after teaming up with Katherine Copeland in the Women’s Lightweight Double Sculls rowing final, will be back at the Cherry Red Records Stadium this Saturday.

Sophie, who played for Wimbledon Ladies FC as a teenager, will also take part in our man of the match celebrations (5.30pm approximately in the middle bar). Gold medalist Sophie, who even painted her fingernails blue and yellow in the final at Eton Dorney, will be treated to our matchday carvery as the club’s special guest, before being presented to the crowd at half-time.
