Jenson Button Competing In London Triathlon

Button.jpg Be still, our beating hearts. Brawn GP's pretty ginger driver - oh, and championship leader or something - will compete in the London Triathlon this August, raising funds for the Make a Wish Foundation. It's based at the ExCel Centre but the bike and run courses cover much of Docklands, with the cyclists even going as far as Westminster. If you fancy racing the Formula 1 fella in a 1500m swim, 40km bike ride and 10km run, charity and team relay places are still available - and best of luck to you. We'd cheer you on, but we might be too busy with our marriage proposal placards. *ahem* (Image / amika_san)

I have a tenuous claim to fame in that I come from the town where Jenson Button lived and found this fairly amusing article from one of the local rags pondering why he'd chosen to move to Monaco instead of staying in Bicester. I mean, who'd want to live in Monaco?
