Colin Jackson is one of the greatest british athletes of all time. A sprint hurdler of phenomenal speed and ability, he holds two world records and has collecter a recordbreaking haul of 25 major championship medals. Spring 2003 saw him finally hang up his spikes after an amazing 20 years at the top of his sport.
Here, in his first ever autobiography, Colin describes with searing honesty the highs and lows of his career, including his world championship wins, the dramatic split with his close friend and business partner Linford Christie, and the tragic death of his team-mate Ross Baillie. For the first time he also speaks out about the darker side of athletics: the drugs, the corruption and the personal sacrifices an athlete needs to make to reach the top.
Moving and uplifting in equal measure, this frank and honest autobiography gives us a true insight into what it takes to reach the pinnacle of world sport and stay at the top for 20 years.
