Gabby Logan, 48, looks in good shape as she gears up for her Olympic marathon from BBC coverage

Gabby Logan, 48, is gearing up for her Olympic marathon where she will be doing BBC coverage from Salford for the next two weeks

Gabby Logan gears up for her own Olympic marathon, with the former gymnast proving she can still do the splits.

The TV presenter, 48, will be leading BBC coverage of the Tokyo Games from today – and she’s embarking on a grueling run that will see her onscreen every day for the next two weeks from the studios in Salford.

This will be Ms. Logan’s fourth appearance at the Olympics, having made her Beijing debut in 2008 as host of Games Today and Olympics Tonight.

In photos taken prior to Tokyo 2020, she proved that she is still as flexible as ever as she did the splits and extended her leg above her head.

Earlier this week she enjoyed her last hurrah before starting the Olympics with a family trip to Cornwall.

Ms Logan, who recently finished presenting the BBC’s Euro 2020 programme, shared photos on Instagram of her and husband Kenny Logan, 49, a former Scottish rugby player, who took full advantage of the coastal heat wave.

But as of today, she will return to work as she presents the two-week Olympic coverage from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day.

When asked how this year’s Games will be different from previous years, Ms. Logan said in the August issue of Good Housekeeping magazine: ‘This year we’re presenting from Salford, with a green screen to look like Tokyo!’

She added: “It will be difficult from a concentration point of view… but we will do our best to create a great atmosphere.”

Ms Logan, daughter of former Wales football manager Terry Yorath, wanted to be a professional tennis player as a child but later took up gymnastics.

She went to the Commonwealth Games in Auckland in 1990, but soon after injured her back and developed sciatica. Unable to train or compete, she gave up the sport.
