Much Wenlock has a sporting history that surpasses that of most towns its size, and recently the town welcomed a unique visitor who encapsulates the notion of Wenlock’s legacy coming full circle.
Alison Williamson visited the town’s museum in May to donate some items from her career. The former William Brookes pupil won a silver medal at the world-famous Wenlock Olympian Games archery event at the age of 10 in 1981. Then, in 1992, Alison went to the Barcelona Olympics and competed in the archery event; she took seventh place and broke two British records. Alison also competed in Atlanta, Sydney, Beijing and London – but it was in Athens, on the site where the first modern Olympic Games took place – that Alison won her medal, a bronze.
