How did the trophy, returned last night by Wiggins, manage to get to the USA so quickly. I'm very impressed! Or is there more than one? If so was there another ready to be presented to Farah? They seemed very confident of Murray's win too, with a satelite video link and a Navratilova in place. Was Haile Gebrselassie in place to present to Farah if needed? Ian Botham ready to hand it over to Ian Bell in Perth had he just knocked an unbeaten double century that swayed the vote?
I wondered about that. There must be at least two.
I think it's pretty standard practise to have more than 1 copies of major trophies.
There are 3 Challenge cups, the original never leaves Red Hall as it's pretty worn out. I think the holders have one copy and there is another one that does the rounds.
I have looked after it and moved it around in my car, it is transported in in two bespoke packing cases.
