I'll be commentating on the Olympics live from Beijing this summer for BBC Sport.
It will be my seventh Games, having started as an athlete at the 1980 Moscow Olympics when I was a 19-year-old.
That was my favourite Olympics to compete in as nothing was expected of me, but the Sydney 2000 Games were the best in terms of enjoyment.
I have many fantastic Olympic memories, but my favourite moment was David Hemery winning the 400m hurdles for Britain at the 1968 Mexico Games - it's the first Olympic memory I have and inspired me to get started in athletics.
Away from the commentary, I'm chairman of the English Institute of Sport and run children's charity COCO and have to juggle that with seeing my son who is at school in Edinburgh, my daughter who is at university in Leeds, and watching Sunderland in the Premier League.
Sometimes I think I take on too much, but I've got to keep busy as I get bored incredibly quickly.
