Injuries

Missed the Beijing 2015 World Championships because of sciatica. (britishathletics.org.uk, 21 Aug 2015) "Depression took me out for the sport in 2014 for 18 months." (Athlete, Nov 2017)


Reason: â€œI started athletics in primary school at nine years old, simply because I liked winning things and being good at something.â€? (Athlete, Nov 2017)
Ambition: â€œBe the best athlete I can possibly be. Hopefully that results in plenty of metal around my neck.â€? (Athlete, Nov 2017)
Hero: â€œMy hero as a young athlete was US sprinter Maurice GREENE for his entertainer-like personality.â€? (Athlete, Nov 2017)
Influence: â€œMy late grandad. He was always my biggest fan.â€? (Athlete, Nov 2017)
Ritual: "I'm just very organised and a little OCD, so all my kit and nutrition is sorted the night before." (Athlete, Nov 2017) Before he runs, he draws a small square on his arm, reminding him of what he has achieved and those who have supported him. (independent.co.uk, 07 May 2015)
Additional information

BREAK FROM THE SPORT
Took time away from athletics in 2013, as he struggled with depression. Considered switching to rugby union, but after almost a year he regained the desire to start running, and moved to Bradenton, FL, USA. Made international return for Great Britain at the Nassau 2015 World Relay Championships. "For a long time I didn't know what was wrong. I started changing training, where I live, my nutrition. The one thing I didn't change, or didn't even think about, was whether I had a serious problem. I'll spend the rest of my life with depression, but now I know how to handle it." (independent.co.uk, 07 May 2015)


COMMONWEALTH GAMES
After Games selection in October 2017, wrote on Facebook: "In 2014 I watched the CWG whilst taking a break from the sport. Four years on & I'll be representing my country at my first ever Commies. The Commonwealths means more than an Olympics to me currently. I missed all of 2014 because of depression, so it's time for some redemption. Australia has always been top of my list of places to visit, so to do it with my sport is very lucky." (Athlete, Nov 2017)


TEAM EVENT
Often runs in the 4x400m event. "I love the relay. It's one of the most exciting events in the sport. To be able to realise my own dreams, as well as three other athletes, is pretty special." (Athlete, Nov 2017)


RIVALRY
Most memorable Commonwealth Games moment was the 4x400m relay in Manchester in 2002, where England defeated Wales by 0.01 seconds. "As exciting as it gets." (Athlete, Nov 2017)
