BBC Sport - BBC Get Inspired Unsung Hero 2017: Denise Larrad wins East Midlands award

'She's like a dynamo - she doesn't stop'

Denise Larrad has been named the BBC Get Inspired Unsung Hero for the East Midlands.

"When I was chosen to carry the Olympic torch," says the 55-year-old mother of two, "I made it my mission to get the people of Hinckley moving more."

Despite working night shifts in a warehouse she still finds time to help run walking, orienteering, running and general fitness classes.
