Jehue Gordon

Welcome to Talking Sport!

This week we meet 400m hurdler Jehue Gordon from Trinidad and Tobago.

Jehue recently competed in the World Athletic Championships in Daegu, South Korea.

However, he missed out on qualifying for the final by one hundredth of a second!

Having come 4th in the 2009 World Athletic Championships, Jehue is still one of Trinidad and Tobago’s top stars and he is aiming to compete in the London 2012 Olympics.

Join Natalie in this week's video to hear from Jehue and learn about the word 'inspiration'.
