Team

COACH – Norman Poole

Role: basically the swiss knife of the team. Not only training planner but if necessary part-time doctor, taxi driver and psychologist. A tool for every occasion.

I first met Norman in late 2005 and the impact was instant! After just 6 months I reduced my Personal Best time from 1.48 to 1.45.2 and the progress has continued to flourish.

Now 7 years later with a p.b of 1.43,89 I’ve moved up the UK All-Time rankings over 150 places to a lofty number 7!

AGENT – PACE Sports Management

Role: the man behind my regular appearances racing on tv. Competition getting into the best races is fierce and this man gets the job done!

Ricky Simms and the team at PACE never cease to amaze me with their ability to find time for all their world class athletes. The roster speaks for itself with the likes of Usain Bolt and Mo Farah to look after, it basically makes Ricky the most powerful man in athletics. Not a bad man to have on your side! Ricky became my agent in 2006 and has stuck with me through thick and thin, a hugely important person in my athletics career and a good friend.

PHYSIO – HARRIS & ROSS

Role: just like a formula1 car an athletes body needs help fine tuning and keeping it in tip top condition.

I was first introduced to Jeff in the summer of 2011. I was in the midst of injury problems and needed help getting through the season. Jeff stepped up to the plate and not only got me through that period but also helped push me into the London Olympics after a Hernia operation just 6 months before the games looked destined to derail my dreams.
