It appears that the MCM Routemaster is the place to be for Olympic athletes in dire need of a spot of relaxation, after Pete Reed and his fiancee, we were happy to welcome three bronze medallists members of Team GB Gymnastics: Kristian Thomas, Sam Oldham & Max Whitlock.
They hopped on the bus straight from the Olympic Park and we offered them a well-deserved VIP escort all the way to Shoreditch House, a cool members' club in East London to celebrate their winnings. For those of you not familiar with Shoreditch House, it occupies part of the Tea Building on Bethnal Green Road and is part of the Soho House Group (that counts members clubs in London, LA, NY and Miami). There is a spa, restaurant and even a pool on the roof there - I love it!

Kristian, Sam and Max won Bronze in Gymnastics, which makes them Olympic heroes in the UK as thanks to them, Great Britain got its first medals in Olympic gymnastics in over a century (the last one dates from the Stockholm games in 1912 - crazy, isn't it?). This victory was a huge achievement, especially when competing against current gymnastic giants such as United States, China and Japan! This time the team - also including Louis Smith and Daniel Purvis - scored a total of 271,711.
