Ask the athlete: Jehue Gordon


With qualification for the London 2012 Olympic Games secured, Trinidad and Tobago hurdler Jehue Gordon can afford to spend time dealing with growing media interest.

However, this particular interview comes with a twist - as the questions are delivered from a school in the West Midlands, almost 4,500 miles away.

Students from Sandwell Academy have been following Jehue's progress for almost two years, and got the opportunity to ask the athlete about training, diet, and life away from the running track as the Games approach.

Sandwell Academy is twinned with Jehue's old school, Belmont Boys School, through the BBC and British Council Olympic Dreams Network, and you can follow Jehue Gordon on World Olympic Dreams.
