I broke Sir Roger Bannisters track record for 1 mile at Iffley Road recording 3m 58.9 secs in a special 40th Anniversary Commemorative Race

UK 5000m Champion- Cardiff

I beat the then reigning Olympic 5000m Champion and 5 times World Cross Country Champion, John Ngugi, over 5000m at Portsmouth in a Great Britain vs USA vs Kenya triangular match. This was my most inspired performance as an athlete.

It was a gripping race- I hung on to him for 11 laps and made my own bid for victory with 600m left. 12,000 spectators roared me down the finishing straight and I just held him off for victory by the thickness of my vest!
