Tom Parsons: Part-time job 'taken pressure off' high jumper

Birmingham high jumper Tom Parsons tells BBC WM getting a part-time job has helped take the financial pressure off him and allowed him to be a lot more relaxed about his athletics.

Parsons, who has been named in the Great Britain squad for the World Indoor Championships in Poland in March, says he remains as determined as ever to win a medal after reaching the final at the 2006 Commonwealth Games, the 2007 World Championships and the Olympic Games in Beijing in 2008.
