Other information RELATIONSHIP
He met his fiancée, Hannah England, in 2006 and the demands of both their careers have been hard to balance with their relationship at times. On the flip side, when one of them does well it is equally as special for the other. "We are a team so when she won her silver last year [2011], that gave me as much satisfaction as many of my own running achievements as we have gone through her full development as an athlete together. Largely, we feed off each other's excitement and positivity and the tides have certainly turned in recent years, where Hannah now challenges me on my mental approach and tactics - however, I am not ready to step into her shadow just yet."
