BIGGEST SPORTING INSPIRATION?

Obviously everyone’s main role model is Usain Bolt because he is the world record holder and the best short distance sprinter we have ever seen, but when I got more clued up about athletics and started to learn the technique with it. I started to try and see who I could compare myself to, in terms of running styles, and I found myself becoming a big fan of Carl Lewis and Donovan Bailey.

WHEN DID YOU BEGIN THINKING THIS WOULD BE YOUR CAREER?

I have always run from a very young age, my dad used to take me to the park all the time and we used to race each other the length of the park and see who could get their first and when I started beating him you could see him realise that maybe I could have a future in athletics, but it got a bit more real for me when I was finishing secondary school.

BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT SO FAR?

This season collectively I would say has been one of my best seasons yet. I managed to make the first olympic team. Something I did not think that I would achieve till my mid or late 20s so being able to make a team at 20 and be one of the youngest people there and apply myself the way I did, I’m very proud of
