Additional information

LATE SUCCESS
First season of athletics in 2013, aged 28. In 2017, ran four 400m personal bests. "I was playing football, bit of non-league, (and had) a few trials with professional clubs. The first day I stepped on the track, a coach said, 'You’re not an athlete and you’ll never make an athlete'. Well, look at me now." (thetimes.co.uk, 6 Aug 2017, tilastopaja.eu, Nov 2017)


FOOTBALL TO ATHLETICS
Spent younger life playing football before taking up sprinting in late 20s. So what’s tougher? "Athletics is 10 times worse. Training is hard. Races are hard. In football, sometimes you can play for 90 minutes and not even sweat. Athletics is physical pain. Just torture." (dwaynecowan.com, Nov 2017)


PASSION
Also a history buff. (Athlete, Nov 2017)
