GRAB a copy of the Dorset Echo’s photographic memento of the Olympics before it’s too late.
Local sailing medallists have already snapped up their own souvenir copies of When the World Came to Weymouth, which is now available to the public.
Portland’s Olympic silver medallist Stuart Bithell hailed the book as a ‘nice memento’ of the home Games.
The 25-year-old, who claimed silver in the men’s 470 dinghy class with Luke Patience, said the borough ‘was a cool place’ to be this summer and he hoped this legacy would continue.
Stuart, of Weston, claimed a souvenir edition with images of him meeting the Duchess of Cambridge and joked ‘it brings back the memories of meeting my Kate’.
He described sailing in front of the crowd on the Nothe as ‘good fun’ and added: “Hopefully sailing will continue to attract spectators.”
The photographic book is available at the Dorset Echo offices on the Granby industrial estate, in Antelope Walk, Dorchester and at the Bridport News office and costs £3.95.
