London Team Wins a Gold Medal

The London Summer 2012 Olympic  and Paralympic games are now over. During the quiet time between these two amazing world events, Marketwire’s Mark Crocker, Tom List and Mike Burrows competed and won their very own gold medals in the BBC West London 5 – a side soccer league (football for those outside of North America).

London Wins Gold – Mark Crocker, Tom List, Michael Burrows

Playing with a couple of non-Marketwire team members, the team won their league with a maximum of 9 points which earned them the right to play in the end of the season tournament on August 22nd. With their amazing skills and start, the “chaps” were able to make it through to the semi-finals, clinching their place in the final with a 1-0 win.

The final was a closely fought battle, that ended with a penalty shoot out after normal play and extra time. Mike ‘The Power’ Burrows scored the winning goal for the team securing their gold medal win.

With sore legs, the team posed for the picture below.

The Winning Team

Congratulations guys! A true test of determination and great team work.
