Colin Jackson is one of the greatest athletes that Britain has ever produced.  He was in the world top ten for 16 years, and was world number 1 for two of them.  He set seven European and Commonwealth and nine UK records, and he still holds the world record for indoor hurdling.

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 17?  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.
