Amongst other things, managing to look fine in her fifties!
Her son showed promise as a sprinter, especially over 200m (ranked 3rd in his age group at 14) but opted for football and was given a place in the Academy of the team I support. He's been there a couple of years now but I've not really heard much about him. As you know, competition is fierce in professional football and very few make it, so fingers crossed for the lad.
One of Sonia's contemporaries, Wendy Clarke, married fellow sprinter Les Hoyte (brother of the more successful Trevor) and produced two footballing sons, Gavin and Justin. Wendy's twin is 6.44m long-jumper Barbara, who married triple-jumper Aston Moore; she is also aunt to 400m runner Chris Clarke. Quite a family.
