Just prior to Christmas, 300-400 people attended the funeral of Ayo Falola. The funeral was followed by a celebration of his life at Lee Valley.
Ayo formed part of the 4x100m team which still holds the club record in that event, and the other members of that record holding team were present to pay tribute to their former team-mate.
The record, of 40.15 seconds, was set when winning the Cup-Final at Bedford on 30.8.97, and the order was Ayo, Josephus Thomas, Jocelyn Thomas, Tim O´Dell. The photo shows, from left to right, Josephus, Tim and Jocelyn, with one of Ayo's sons, Ben.
