Reason: "I got into athletics through my local club, Stubbington Green Runners. They were holding the annual 10,000m fun run, I was doing my Sunday morning paper round. I phoned my dad from the paper shop, asked him to run me round in the car, bring some trainers and something to run in. I entered the race, won it and signed up to the club that day. I was 14 years old." (eightlane.org, 18 May 2015)
