This man raced the subway and won

James Heptonstall can proudly claim to the man who raced a subway and won.

He ran from Bowling Green Station to Wall Street Station in New York City as part of a program launched by Adidas, who have claimed their latest shoe is “the greatest ever.” 

James, who plays Touch Rugby for England, joined Wake Up London to explain how an invite from Adidas led him to meet international Olympic sprinter Yohan Blake.
