Greg Rutherford receives model of Clare Bigger's sculpture Leaping Man

The real” Leaping Man”

8.5m stainless steel sculpture based on Olympic Gold winning long jumper Greg Rutherford

Leaping Man, Milton Keynes

Just under three and a half years ago, I was approached to design and make a sculpture which was to be based on long jumper Greg Rutherford.  Milton Keynes born and bred, he had recently won gold in the 2012 Olympic Games.  I was so pleased to be asked as i am particularly interested in sport.  I set about making a scale model which won the approval of the council.  A little over a year later, I got the go ahead to proceed. It was installed on Fen roundabout in Milton Keynes in June 2014.

This week Greg Rutherford was presented with a small version of that sculpture by Milton Keynes Council in recognition of his continuing success at the top of his game.  I was very pleased to at last get an opportunity to meet this inspirational athlete.
