Greg Rutherford's gold medal in the Olympic long jump has already been marked by people living in a Milton Keynes street.

People in Rutherford Gate, Shenley Lodge have unofficially renamed the street 'Greg Rutherford Gate'.

Greg, 25, who grew up in the Bletchley area of Milton Keynes and now lives in Woburn Sands, jumped to victory on Saturday 4 August 2012.

His gold medal winning performance of 8.31m came between the gold medals for Jessica Ennis in the heptathlon and Mo Farah in the 10,000m.

Discussions are now underway to work out how to permanently mark Greg's achievement in Milton Keynes.

Among the things that have been suggested are the renaming of a roundabout in his honour, the renaming of Station Square in Central Milton Keynes, or the creation of an 8.31m-long gold strip somewhere in MK.

How do you think Greg's achievement should be celebrated in Milton Keynes? Leave a comment below.
