LONDON – Two British Olympians have taken to Twitter to appeal for help recovering a pair of bronze medals that were snatched from a London nightclub.
Rower Alex Partridge and field hockey star Hannah Macleod posted images of a man at the nightclub in hopes of gaining more information.
Scotland Yard said Thursday it is investigating reports of a stolen Olympic medal and blazer from an event in Mayfair. The police say they were not contacted about a second medal.
The thefts reportedly came after Queen Elizabeth II hosted a Buckingham Palace event in honor of Britain's Olympic team.
Partridge, a member of the men's eight-man team, says his blazer and medal were taken. Macleod, under the username (at)hannahmacleod6, wrote "My medal was also stolen at the same time. Totally devastated."
