Wimbledon fan Ziggy completed London Marathon
Wimbledon supporter Ziggy Heath battled through the pain barrier to complete his London Marathon mission - and now he hopes his beloved Dons can get over the line by beating Fleetwood on Saturday.
Ziggy, who was representing AFC Wimbledon and raising money for the Dons Trust, just dipped under the four-hour mark on Sunday with a time of three hours and 58 minutes.
It was an effort that Ziggy could be well pleased with in his first attempt at the 26-mile event.
“It was a great experience,” he said. “However, the last eight miles was particularly tough because I twisted my ankle after stepping on a water bottle. There was no chance of me pulling out though after the support from so many people."
Ziggy, who is an actor and will feature in BBC One’s What Remains this September, attended his first AFC Wimbledon game at Guildford and Godalming and he is keeping his fingers crossed that the Dons will do it on Saturday.
“I cannot make it this weekend and I just wish everyone the best of luck this Saturday,” he added. “I am sure we can do it and the lads can keep us in the Football League.”
