Diary: The iceman cometh

Following news that Albion is venturing into the US for the first time, it seems that some of its employees have already been making waves overseas.

Teddy Keen, a creative, has hit the headlines after winning the Kuopio Ice Marathon in Finland - the toughest ice race in the world - just three months after taking up the sport.

In fact, Keen was the only competitor to finish the mammoth 200km race, after the rest of the racers pulled out due to extreme weather conditions. But Keen battled on, braving temperatures of minus 28C, to help raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital and the craniofacial support group Headlines.

An incredible achievement, particularly when you realise that the only way Keen could train for the event was by rollerblading in London parks and lying in cold baths.
