“Most memorable moment – there are a few – (1) Winning 1st International. (2) Sitting between Roger Black and Todd Bennett on the plane to Prague and next to Linford Christie on the way home! and (3) winning the Southern 400mH Champs in 58.07 aged 37 and 3 years after the birth of my first child. “
