This has to be one of the most inspiring stories I’ve heard from a SSiW new Welsh speaker!
Martin Green has spent the last 6 months rocketing through Levels 1, 2 and 3 with the goal of being able to speak Welsh in an S4C interview, and the reason he thought he might be interviewed?
He was competing in this year’s Snowdonia Marathon on Saturday and he knew that if he got into the first 3 men he would be interviewed on S4C. He was determined that he would do that interview in Welsh.
So, not only did he turn himself into a Welsh speaker, he achieved his running goal and came in SECOND!
I’m not sure if Martin is here on the forum, but he is in the 6 Minute a Day (old 2YWS) Slack forum, so if people would like to leave their congratulations here, I’ll pop a message there to point him at this thread
The S4C programme is available on Clic at http://www.s4c.cymru/clic/programme/799140812 and you can see Martin approaching the finish at about 40:12 into the programme. His interview is aired shortly after that.
Fantastic effort on both accounts!
