Olympic Medals ‘Theft’ – Stars Appeal [twitter]

 

Two British Olympians said Wednesday that their medals were stolen — and they’ve turned to social media in an attempt to get them back.

Alex Partridge and hockey player Hannah Macleod said their 2012 Olympic bronze medals, along with Partridge’s “Team GB” blazer, disappeared early Wednesday at an upmarket London nightclub.

@2012parters, Partridge, 31, posted a CCTV image with the tweet: “Does anyone recognize this man as he may be able to help me get my@London2012 bronze medal and @TeamGB blazer back.”

 

 

Speaking to BBC Sport of the missing honour, Partridge said: ‘I always say to people ‘it’s not about the medal, it’s about the journey’ but I guess you don’t appreciate the value of it until it’s not there.’

A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed that it was investigating reports of a stolen Olympic medal and blazer from an event in the Mayfair area of London on Wednesday, although no arrests had been made. The force had not yet been contacted about a second stolen medal, he added.

The police have released a picture of the suspect male caught on CCTV, and are requesting that anyone with information call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
