Rachel Browse, a trainee solicitor with Barnett Alexander Chart, has stormed her way through a Gladiators competition, beating her opponent by 22 points to three. Browse competed live in front of 8,000 people at Wembley arena on 14 April. "It was a great experience. I kicked arse," she said. "It's easy to sit on the sofa and think how easy it is. But it was really tough." She runs six miles every morning before going to work and goes to the gym in the evenings. About 65 colleagues from Barnett Alexander Chart turned out to support Browse. Peter Moody, head of litigation, was among them. He said: "It was a very exciting contest and Rachel ran away with it. We were all rooting for her."
