Deloitte’s good sports

TS’ loyal readers may recall our previous story about how Olympic bid FD Neil Wood could be a medal contender at the 2012 games.

But TS can reveal that Wood, a partner at Deloitte, will face some stiff competition from his colleagues. It turns out that the Big Four firm has quite a track record of producing accountants with an athletic edge.

In the Wooden Spoon Four Peaks Endurance Challenge, Deloitte’s Charles Bradbrook, Ross Cattell, Andrew Robinson and Wayne Thomas clinched the Ben Nevis bowl, while down on the water, a Deloitte team recently won the Sunsail Industry Sailing Challenge for the third-year running.

It all sounds rather taxing (sorry, couldn’t resist that) ­ but TS will be watching Team Deloitte’s potential quest for 2012 glory with interest, from the comfort of our armchair.
