International athletics star Michael Johnson is the guest speaker at the 2007 S4C Sports Lecture and Dinner to be held at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff, on 8 November.
The five-times winner of Olympic gold, famed as the man with the ‘golden shoes’, still holds the world records as the fastest sprinter over 200 and 400 metres.
Michael, also well-known as a television pundit and columnist, will speak about what makes a top class competitor and what can ensure success at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
The S4C Sports Lecture and Dinner is becoming a popular annual event, which reflects the Channel’s reputation for its comprehensive sports coverage from all over the world.
S4C has ambitious plans to expand its sports services, as witnessed by its recent coverage of the Rugby World Cup and the new agreement with the Football Association of Wales.
