Description

Colin Jackson is one of the greatest athletes that Britain has ever produced. He was in the world top ten for 16 years, and was world number 1 for two of them. He set seven European and Commonwealth and nine UK records, and he still holds the world record for indoor hurdling. In 2003 Colin retired from athletics in front of an adoring home crowd. Then real life began. In Life's New Hurdles Colin describes the shock of adjusting to sudden change. How would he manage without the strict routine of training and competing that had been his life since the age of 17? Would he forever long to be back on the track? And how satisfying would his new career be as a sports presenter and television personality? From athletics commentating to Strictly Come Dancing, Colin describes the challenges and joys of starting a whole new life.

Author Biography

COLIN JACKSON Without a doubt one of the greatest athletes that Great Britain has ever produced, Colin Jackson, who still holds the Indoor world record for the 60m hurdles, called time on his outstanding athletics career in front of an adoring home crowd at the World Indoor Championships in Birmingham in 2003. After more than a decade spent at the very pinnacle of his sport, it was a fitting end to a glittering career. Colin is one of the most respected and loved of all British sports stars and his down to earth, approachable manner has endeared him to public and media alike. Since his retirement Colin has firmly established his place as a key broadcasting figure on and off the screen both in and outside sport as well as becoming one of the top sports speakers on the circuit.
