Why Theo is making waves in Australia

FUNNY to see that Bristol & West athlete Theo Campbell has been causing a stir Down Under.

Campbell is in Australia with the England team competing in the innovative Nitro Athletics meeting and hit the headlines after blowing Aussie sprinter Morgan Mitchell a kiss as he overtook her near the finish line of a mixed medley relay in Melbourne – as the photo taken by Getty illustrates.

Campbell was labelled a ‘cocky Brit’ for the gesture and when asked for her comment Morgan replied: “It’s kinda cute, he thinks he’s a big, strong man.”

Back home Campbell’s coach James Hillier could only shake his head in bemusement, remarking on Facebook that prior to the trip he had warned Campbell to ‘stay out of trouble – and don’t go chasing women!’
