Life's New Hurdles

by Colin Jackson
£1.99   paperback  Accent Press Ltd (2008)

Life Colin Jackson is one of the greatest athletes that Britain has ever produced. He was in the world top ten for sixteen years, and was world number one for two of them. He set seven European and Commonwealth and nine UK records, and he still holds the world record for indoor hurling.
 
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 seventeen? 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.
