Sporting relatives

Husband, Jeff PORTER (USA), competed in 110m hurdles at London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Younger sister, Cindy OFILI, represented Great Britain in 100m hurdles at Beijing 2015 World Championships and Rio 2016 (placed fourth, Tiffany seventh). Father, Felix, took part in athletics and football at university in Nigeria, and older brothers, Frank and Alex, played American football at university in USA. (IAAF, 08 Feb 2016, tilastopaja.eu, Nov 2017)


Reason: Followed father into athletics. Took it up seriously aged 11 and began hurdling aged 15. (thisislondon.co.uk, 10 Jun 2011)
Additional information

CHOICE MOVE
Previously represented USA but switched to Great Britain in 2010. "I've had dual citizenship since birth and always been proud of my heritage. My mother is from London, England. My father is from Nigeria. The reasons for my change were not because I couldn't make the American team. I chose Great Britain because I really appreciate the support that we have. I just thought it was the best fit for me." (telegraph.co.uk, 13 Jul 2015)


NATIONAL FIRST
Became first athlete representing Great Britain to win medal in 100m hurdles at world championships when she claimed bronze at Moscow 2013. (bbc.com, 17 Aug 2013)
