Prestons present gold medal cyclist with TAG Heuer


Prestons of Bolton have presented gold medal Olympic cyclist Jason Kenny with a very special gift to celebrate his win, a TAG Heuer Carrera.

In conjunction with the Swiss watch brand the retailer gifted the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Day Date Automatic Chronograph to the cyclist at its store in Bolton.

In a photo call at the store double-gold medallist, and Bolton local, Kenny showed off his medals as he posed with staff.


Prestons of Bolton store manager Sue Hurst said: “Precision and performance are the hallmarks of the TAG Heuer brand which is why we felt this watch was the perfect choice for Jason as in cycling both elements are critical to success.”

Cyclist Kenny became a local hero in Bolton this summer after clinching a gold medal in the men’s team sprint and the individual sprint at the Olympics 2012. These medals add to the gold and silver he picked up at the Olympics in Beijing in 2008. On his return to Bolton Kenny was given a civic reception by city.
