The UK’s top sprinter on smoked salmon before a session, his love of a good javelin competition and how his grandad’s funeral inspired him to get into the sport
What have you been up to recently? I’ve been in Berlin doing some photo stuff with Nike for its new shoe, the Pegasus Turbo. Then just seeing my mates in London quite a bit, watching the World Cup football, having barbecue and social with the lads … That’s about it. I’ve been pretty busy competing and travelling so I haven’t had much down time.
Where’s your favourite place to run? I’m not really fussed where I train – as long as I’ve got good facilities, I’m quite adaptable. So long as I’ve got all the stuff that I need, I don’t really mind. My favourite place to race is anywhere with Mondo – a good, old hard track that’s quite fast.
