BBC Sport - Colin Jackson reveals why he chose athletics over cricket

Why 'lazy' Jackson chose athletics over cricket

Former world 110m hurdles champion Colin Jackson reveals his sporting career could have gone in an entirely different direction - cricket.

Jackson, who has received an honorary degree from Wrexham Glyndwr University, recalls why as a youngster he decided on an athletics competition rather than a cricket match.

The Welsh hurdler went on become a two-time world champion and his 110m hurdles world record stood for over 12 years.
