Additional information

SHATTERED DREAMS
Competing at London 2012 Olympic Games, pulled up in heat of 110m hurdles with hamstring injury. Then followed 1384 days without competing in an outdoor race due to injuries, requiring surgery. "London (2012 Olympics) was so overwhelming. It was a sour taste in my mouth. Imagine one of the worst things happening in your life in front of millions of people. I came away and questioned if I wanted to do that again." (telegraph.co.uk, 5 Aug 17 and 3 Mar 17)


EUROPEAN CHAMPION
Overcame years of injury to win 60m hurdles at Belgrade 2017 European Indoor Championships. "At the toughest times and darkest days, I always believed I had what it took to be a medallist at major championships. I never gave up." (telegraph.co.uk, 3 Mar 2017)


MORE BIG STAGE WOES
Considered a medal hope at London 2017 World Championships, led his semifinal until he clipped the ninth and penultimate hurdle, eventually placing fourth and failing to make final. (thesun.co.uk, 6 Aug 2017)
