Description
Colin Jackson is one of the greatest British athletes ever, a sprint hurdler of phenomenal speed and ability. Holding 2 world records, he has collected an amazing haul of 25 major championship medals and has become, in the words of Michael Johnson, the greatest sprint hurdler ever.

Spring 2003 saw Colin hang up his spikes after 20 years competing at the pinnacle of his sport. Here he describes the highs and lows of his career, from breaking the world 110mh record in 1993, to finishing only 7th in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.

He also gives his opinion of the darker side of athletics: the drugs, the corruption and the sacrifices an athlete needs to make to reach the top. He talks frankly about the split with his friend and business partner, Linford Christie, and the death of his friend and team-mate, Ross Baillie.

In this inspiring autobiography, Colin chronicles his career, and provides a compelling insight into what it means to lead the world in your chosen sport.
