Good work Lauren!

We have to admit we’re a little jealous of meningitis survivor, Lauren Booth, after she managed to get a cheeky snap with Prince Harry (swoon) after bumping into him at the Manchester Para Cycling Track International last month

Lauren Booth and Harry letterbox
Oh and not to mention the small fact that she had just got herself a new British Paracycling record!

Inspirational Lauren, who contracted meningitis at just six weeks old, was taking part in the Youth Omnium Challenge when she brushed shoulders with everyone’s favourite Prince, who was at the track supporting a friend he served in Afghanistan with. 

A successful day all round, Lauren won three event - the 200m and 500m time trials and the 2000m pursuit. Her time in the flying 200m trial set a new British record, just missing out on beating the current world record.

This isn’t the first time Lauren’s been in the royal spotlight….she once shared the track with cycling royalty, Sir Chris Hoy. We can’t wait to hear what’s next for Lauren. 

Go girl!
