Olympic success for SOS family member


Search Office Space Sales Consultant, James Smith, is celebrating after his brother, US athlete Will Claye, won the silver medal for the Men’s Triple Jump at the 2012 Olympics.

Will’s success follows on his success in the Long Jump earlier this week where he won a bronze medal.

Will jumped 8.12 m in the Long Jump and a massive 17.62 m in the Triple Jump. At one point he was in the position for gold at the triple jump, but was overtaken by team mate Christian Taylor who jumped an incredible 17.81m.

Congratulating James on his brother’s triumphs Search Office Space’s COO, Jon Posener said: “All of us at SOS want to congratulate James on his brother’s success. Just to win one medal at the Olympics is a lifetime achievement, to win two is near heroic. James and his family must be over the moon.”

James himself was understandably ecstatic, “Will has performed fantastically and we all extremely proud of him.”
