Lee is a good fencer, coach and referee although where he gets this from is beyond all of us as none of the immediate family are very sporty but Lee has a good talent when it comes to fencing. He also started a Fencing Club in Jordanstown, Belfast last year and it is growing steadily.

|Me keeping up with Lee but not for long|
Fred (who is 6 foot tall & a bit fit) ran along one side of the road stopping and turning to snap shots of Lee and I gallantly ran off on the other side trying to keep up with lee or even get in front of him to try to take more video. That was a laugh for everyone as I was out of puff in no time at all, even calling out to him to run slowly just got a laugh from him in return (plus laughs from the security guys running alongside him).
Needless to say Fred got some nice shots as he could easily keep up with Lee but I just have shaky, blurry video for that part.

The next day he was on the go again and raised money for a local charity by allowing more pictures to be taken of him and the torch.

The smiles on the faces of all the runners proved that.
