It seems the right moment to talk about a sibset to do with the Olympics, or at least talk about a family related to a British sportsman.

It was in September 1997 that she retired from sport and has since taken up a sports punditry role with the BBC on and off.
With hubbie Jonathan Bigg, she has 3 sons:
All mostly typical modern names for the modern Brit baby, the names ranked thusly in England&Wales in 2010: Finley at #35; Luca at #70; Marley at #160.
