"Green to Gold"Posted by Paul Fairweather on 26th Jul 2011
The City of London,as part of their Olympic initiative organised a day[6th July] entitled "Green to Gold".Bill Hawkins mentioned to the organiser that Ronnie Cooper had boxed in the 1948 Olympics and suggested they ask him along as a guest of honour.
He was duly invited,accompanied by LEBA members Sammy McCarthy and Alan Docker.At a Guidhall reception Ron entertained the "top nobs" with tales of his memories from 1948 including his diet and Olympic photos.They all had a very enjoyable day.
Many thanks to Bill Hawkins for this article and photo.
