Grabarz turned down 'dream job' for athletics

Olympic bronze medallist, Robbie Grabarz is "shocked" by his recent success and reveals he recently turned down a dream job to continue competing in the high jump.

The 24-year old Briton, who is back in action at this Thursday's Diamond League meeting in Zurich, turned down a job restoring classic cars ahead of London 2012.

Grabarz believes he "wasted" previous years by under performing, but insists he "could not be more confident" going into this week's event.

Watch the Diamond League meeting in Zurich live on BBC Two and on the BBC Sport website from 1900 BST on Thursday.
