Auction of Speed...
The first lot to take the stand was a running vest signed by the Jamaican track and field team. Bidding started at a modest £100 but rapidly reached an impressive £4,200 in the room, selling to celebrity chef and entrepreneur, Levi Roots.
The second lot - a pair of spikes signed by the world's fastest man, Usian Bolt - really got the crowd excited. A bidding war instantly surfaced until the sporting memorabilia sold for a staggering £25,000 to Birmingham businessman, Eamon Gaughan.
The money raised will go towards supporting a life changing opportunity for a student resident in Jamaica to study at the University of Birmingham, delivering a true Olympic legacy for the city and the Jamaican community.
